Charity Ball – Through The Looking Glass

Jenkinsons are thrilled to be the chosen caterers for Steelite International’s Teacup and Candlelight Charity Ball. Tickets are still available for this fabulous event being held on Friday 26th September 2014.


Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ guests are cordially invited to tumble down the rabbit hole and enjoy a champagne reception followed by a sumptuous three course meal served on Steelite’s Award Winning Tableware. Their Torino collection has been chosen to showcase the main course; this fabulously retro range combines the best of both classic and modern design and we can’t wait to enhance the tableware with an exquisitely presented taste sensation.

The Charity Ball is being hosted at the Haywood Academy, one of Stoke-on-Trent’s leading high schools. The Academy’s motto is ‘Inspiring Creativity and Achievement’ which complements Steelite International’s commitment to support and encourage local youth aspirations and education.

For the second year running Steelite International have invited students from The Haywood Academy to complete work experience at their state of the art manufacturing facilities in Burslem, as part of the Industrial Cadets scheme which was inspired by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. The scheme aims to raise awareness of local career opportunities in manufacturing and industry.

The charity ball aims to raise money for Steelite International’s ‘Giving Something Back’ community fund, helping to support more local initiatives and charities with much-needed funding. If you’d like to show your support, then CLICK HERE for more information on how to buy your tickets. Alternatively Steelite International are inviting local businesses to donate a prize for the raffle which will be held on the night.

We hope that you can make it to this incredible event. I’d love to share details of the fabulous menu we have planned but half the fun of fine dining is the anticipation so you’ll just have to wait and see!
