Three hundred waiters have taken part in a race at Hyde Park, London for The Springboard Charity’s fifth National Waiters’ Day.

The flagship race in Hyde Park was among the activities that took place nationwide for the campaign, which aims to change perceptions on roles in the hospitality industry.

Anne Pierce, Springboard’s chief executive, said: “National Waiters’ Day is all about promoting careers in food, drink and front of house roles throughout hospitality - from baristas to sommeliers; maitre d’s to casual dining staff; bartenders to mixologists and waiters.

“It’s about showcasing talent, what’s involved in each role, how people can start and progress great careers and work for some great employers.”

National Waiters’ Day, founded by general manager at Galvin at Windows Fred Sirieix, was also supported by a social media campaign, with the hashtag #NWD2017.
