It was with great excitement that Naomi recently headed off to Portsmouth to celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of our supporters, the sublime Vanilla Catering. We are proud to list the team among our friends here at the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, and couldn’t be more pleased that they have once again chosen us as their charity for the year.
Vanilla Catering’s support during the last year, and through into this year, has been amazing. For every meal that they produce, 20p is donated directly to the Foundation; £1,300 was raised for the Foundation last year alone – who knows where 2014 will take us!
Attended by around 100 guests, the evening’s festivities were held at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyards. A delicious menu of canapés, each prepared by Vanilla Catering, was served throughout the evening. The tasty treats on offer included vegetable tempura with sweet soy dipping sauce, smoked ham hock, onion chutney on a cheese and chive scone, pan fried beef strips, and rosemary and smoked garlic parmentier potatoes with roasted tomatoes – heaven!
The evening also provided the opportunity for Naomi to discuss the work of the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, and guests were able to watch an emotional video charting her experiences with cancer and the decision to found a charity that would help others in her situation.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Vanilla Catering for their continued support. Happy anniversary!
