Event Catering for Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Event Catering for Breakthrough Breast Cancer

We were thrilled to be asked to provide the event catering for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Fundraising Annual Ball, held at the Staffordshire County Showground on 22nd November 2014. The event raised over £9000 for this incredible charity.

Amazing Comments

The event catering organisers were amazing to work with and we were delighted with their positive feedback about our event catering.

“Many thanks for all the help and co-operation that you gave me during the planning for Saturday’s Fundraising Ball. It all went according to plan and believe it or not, we even stayed on schedule!

The Jenkinsons Catering Manager Theresa did a great job on the night, the tables looked fantastic and there was plenty of room to serve the very elegant dishes.

Thank you and your team for their hard work we haven’t had one single moan about the food – not even from me!!”

Event Catering – Repton School Leavers Ball 2013

With over 50 years’ experience in Event Catering, we were very honoured to be the chosen caterer for Repton School’s Leavers Ball held recently in the school’s magnificent grounds.

Repton School is one of the country’s finest co-educational boarding and day schools, situated in the heart of England amidst the stunning countryside of South Derbyshire. The Leavers Ball follows the pupil’s Graduation Ceremony, held earlier the same day inside a truly impressive Marquee erected for this prestigious event.

Event Catering on this scale is challenging and offers us the opportunity to showcase our logistical and creative skills. Our remit included providing all the equipment to build a kitchen inside the marquee in which we could prepare and cook a fabulous meal for 500 guests. We literally start with an empty space and end up with a professional kitchen.

We worked with Repton School to create a stylish menu fit for the occasion and on the night we pulled it off beautifully with the help of 4 Jenkinsons Chefs, 4 Kitchen Porters, 25 Waiting-On Staff and our most experienced Catering Manager at the helm!

Event Catering encompasses the Bar too; our talented Bar Staff were kept very busy all night and served an impressive amount of Champagne and Vodka, thankfully not in the same glass!


We received some great feedback from guests on the night and we’re pleased to announce that the organisers at Repton School were delighted with our event catering and have invited us back next year!


For now we wish all the Graduating Students from Repton School a bright future and hope that the images below make them smile and help them remember a truly fantastic evening at the 2013 Repton Leavers Ball.
