Hiking Against Homelessness with Only a Pavement Away

Our Hospitality Titans board members, Rupert Culme-Seymour and Rosie Marsh, will be trekking 17km through the Peak District this June to raise money for Only a Pavement Away. 

Read more about this amazing charity below, and if you’re able to, donations would be hugely appreciated to motivate Rupert and Rosie along their way. 

ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY is a charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry who believe that everyone deserves the chance to find and forge a career.

Thier aim is to act as an effective conduit between forward-thinking hospitality employers and charities working with people facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans who struggling to get into work, overcome hurdles by finding jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry. Our industry is an exciting one, built on people.

Only A Pavement Away will help those who are facing homelessness and are therefore struggling to get into work by:

  • Offering career opportunities within the hospitality industry
  • Facilitating training and development programmes, creating capability for work
  • Offering financial support to overcome the barriers to employment including support with rent and other costs which may hinder stability

Outside of the moral benefits, the project is underpinned by a strong commercial and financial benefit to the hospitality, pub & restaurant industry whilst reducing the ever-increasing strain on government funding required for those who find themselves in such extreme and vulnerable circumstances.

The funds raised by ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY will be used to support those returning to work, supplement the resources required by the charities/associations to manage the project and promote the jobs available in the hospitality sector.


“Only a pavement away is an amazing charity that supports homless people, ex vterans and many more, helping them find places to work and live. Thier work is heavily focused around finding them work within the hospiatlity industry, which is very close to my heart. It would mean the world to both myself and Rupert if you could support our challenging 17km hike by donating to this fantastic cause.” – Rosie Marsh

“I actively support the OAPA charity and have done for a number of years because of the significant work they achieve across the hospitality industry. Providing opportunities to gain employment in the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry for those that have experienced homelessness, prison and for veterans of the armed forces is so important to me. Our amazing industry is forged by the people within it irrespective of their background and this Charity provides a pathway to forge a career in it. I’m really looking forward to the challenge of my 2nd Hiking against Homelessness event,  17k in the Peak District in Jun,  whilst being part of a great team of over 50 hospitality professionals & by doing so fundraising for the charity. Bring it on!!” – Rupert Culme-Seymour
