Today's Special

Hospitality, Helping


Zoom Webinar

8:00 PM

The leading lights from the world of food and drink are coming together this July to help feed those most in need, and support vulnerable people within the hospitality industry.

Today‚Äôs Special is a unique, one-off project, to raise funds for two amazing organisations that support people who, now more than ever, need our kindness and generosity.

Action Against Hunger
According to the UN, food shortages could double around the world in the next year due to COVID-19. In parts of Africa this could happen in a matter of months. Action Against Hunger is working in countries around the world, racing to get ahead of this crisis while also supporting the poorest communities here in the UK.

Hospitality Action
80% of the hospitality industry in the UK has been laid off or furloughed. Many are at risk of homelessness, debt and hunger. Hospitality Action is working tirelessly to support the most vulnerable people within the industry to help them get back on their feet.

The Auction
Today's Special brings together two auctions with over 100 'foodie experiences' to enjoy both during and after lockdown.

  • The Live Auction
    The live auction, co-hosted by Andi Oliver and Oliver Peyton with auctioneer Tom Best, will be streamed on Zoom on 1 July at 8 pm (see all 13 lots below).
  • The Online Auction 
    The online auction will close on 3 July. You can view all the 100+ auction lots here.

Hear the latest news on all the lots at Today's Special on Instagram and Twitter

  • Over the phone - with The Auction Collective calling you on the day.
  • With absentee bids - for the auctioneer to bid on your behalf
