Candice Brown announced as Village Hotel Club Community Ambassador together with Sir Mo Farrah and L
Candice Brown has been unveiled as the new food and drink ambassador for Village Hotel Clubs "Village Green" Campaign.
At an event celebrating its new Village Green campaign, each ambassador is announcing a brand-new programme of activities that they’ve co-created with the hotel group to help the communities they operate in thrive, specifically through a series of fitness, business and food and drink initiatives.
The new ‘Village Green’ campaign reinforces the Group’s proposition of being more than ‘just a hotel’, but a unique hotel offering that truly embeds itself in and amongst the local community. To celebrate this, and the opening of its 30th hotel in Bristol, Village Hotel Club is uniting its ambassadors for the first time, providing people with a behind-the-scenes look at a ‘Day in the Life of a Village Hotel Club’.
Candice is launching Village Hotel Club’s new ‘Hospitality Heroes’ initiative. This is a new commitment by the hotel group that will see each Village Hotel offer skills, employment and mentoring to local communities in catering and hospitality skills.
She said, “I have always been involved in the world of hospitality, from growing up in pubs to watching my grandmother baking and cooking. I realise now how lucky I am to have been immersed in this world from a young age, and the impact that has had on my career, from winning Bake Off in 2016 to now owning and running my own pub. That’s why I am working with Village Hotel Club as its Food and Drink Ambassador and launching “Hospitality Heroes” – a new mentoring scheme which will see myself and Village chefs work with catering students around the UK to develop their skills. This partnership will give me the chance to work with young people all over the UK and
heopfully instil some of the same passion that I have for this industry.”
