Burn The Silence

Ignite The Conversation

Donations

At Pilot Light we are dedicated to contributing to real change in the hospitality industry. This means we want to create content, resources and information for all staff who work in hospitality to have access to for free.

We are raising money so that we can make a difference and burn the stigma attached to mental health problems for good. In order to do this, we need your help. If you would like to raise money through a dinner evening, a fundraising event (anything from a sky-dive to a cook-off!) or any other type of event and would like to make a donation, please click on the button below.

This is the hospitality industry supporting the hospitality industry. We love to celebrate people and businesses who help this cause, so please do let us know how you fund-raise so we can show off on our social media pages! Send photos and stories to info@pilotlightcampaign.co.uk

Your support is so valuable to us and we wouldn’t be able to continue this journey without you.

    Mental health week was last month. For me it’s every week, every day, every hour, sometimes the minute I’m in. I live with a brain that’s outta control sometimes. I’ve trained it to be on par….mostly. Read More

    I come from a culture that does not see depression as a ‘thing’ - legitimate, common, or otherwise. Read More

  • Ben Davy

    For me it was culmination of 5 or 6 years of a particularly hard slog. Taking on more, stretching myself too thinly, never learning to say 'no'. Read More

  • Darryl Quested

    I always find it difficult to explain my anxiety and depression to people, it all began with me at a young age, being diagnosed with GAD and depression at the age of 13 (the year my mother was first diagnosed with cancer) Read More

  • Thomas William Greig

    Dark days can happen!! I moved back up north in 2016 for a year, with the intention of doing something for myself. I was sick of working for people who didn’t give a care about you. Read More

  • Andrew Clarke

    Andrew’s story began with a post to Instagram Little did he know at the time that his story would inspire hundreds of people feeling very similarly and lead to a news article in the Guardian and the foundation of Pilot Light. Read More

We cannot do this alone! Together, we can create a community of like-minded professionals united by a common cause: to shine a light on these issues and act as a beacon of support to those affected by them.
