Over the next five years it is estimated that there will be around 1.3million vacancies in the hospitality industry. At the same time, the number of people who are facing or are at risk of becoming homeless is rising. Only A Pavement Away has set out to place 1,000 people back into employment by 2024. To deliver this ambition, the charity is determined to create a fundraising structure to enable a team of 21 by end of 2023 at a cost of £878k.
mum believes people deserve to be looked after properly – and everyone deserves the chance to forge a rewarding career.
That’s why we’re proud to partner with Only a Pavement Away, whose vital work empowers often-overlooked talent and forward-thinking businesses to fulfil their true potential.
Together, we’re making hospitality and recruitment kinder.

Zonal is the leading UK family-owned technology provider, offering a comprehensive, integrated suite of technology solutions to more than 16,000 hospitality and leisure businesses across the country.
Zonal was established in 1979, when the McLean family identified the need for a solution to manage and control their hotel operations near Edinburgh. The solution was the first electronic-point-of-sale (EPoS) system on the market, invented by Zonal’s founder, the late Ralph McLean.
This early EPoS system was admired by legendary brewer Scottish & Newcastle who then adopted our system across their network of pubs, providing both head office and site managers access to a wealth of information.
Ralph handed the reins over to his son, Stuart, who became CEO of Zonal in 1997. Alongside his talented team, Stuart continued to grow and transform the company into what is now: the UK’s largest hospitality technology company.
We now serve more than 16,000 businesses, from small independents through to large chains such as JD Wetherspoon, Greene King, PizzaExpress, Stonegate, Mitchells and Butlers The Restaurant Group, and John Lewis. With more than 40 years behind us, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to offer businesses, new or established, large or small, across the hospitality sector. 75% of the UK pub sector is now powered by Zonal.
Employing 600 staff across the UK, and proud of its award-winning heritage, Zonal is committed to giving back to the community. Zonal has a long tradition of giving back to charitable causes. In the last few years our teams have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, run The London Marathon and taken on the Great Wall of China challenge – all in the name of good causes! We raised over £120,000 for our previous adopted charity, Hope for Children, and are proud to have been awarded Best Corporate Partner for three consecutive years at their annual awards ceremony. In addition to our own initiatives, through our integration with the digital charity box Pennies and our partnership with Pub Aid, we are also actively involved in facilitating & promoting the great work the hospitality industry does in raising huge amounts for Charities the length and breadth of the U.K. We are passionate about giving something back to the community and are delighted to now be working in partnership with Only a Pavement Away.
Dennys Brands is proud to be supporting Only a Pavement Away by supplying uniforms and essentials for candidates who are starting new roles within the Hospitality industry. We offer both front of house and back of house clothing, providing new candidates with the ability to come into store to try on a selection of workwear suitable for their career paths including aprons, chefswear, footwear, and more. This helps candidates start their new role feeling like they belong to the industry whilst helping financially with the costs associated with funding new uniform; a requirement in many places to start work.
Dominc Green, Sales Director says, "We are delighted to be supporting Only a Pavement Away by ensuring their candidates are well equipped with uniforms and equipment when starting in the Hospitality industry. It is such a fantastic charity helping the vulnerable into stable employment, and we are proud to be a part of it."
