Another ‘Help for Heroes’ event

Adams Catering Hire were once again pleased to contribute to another successful event held in aid of  ‘Help for Heroes‘.

Aitch Group organised a Charity Gala Dinner & Dance at Chigwell Hall on Saturday 11th September 2010.  Held in the marquee in the grounds of this beautiful old building, guests were entertained in true old fashioned style.

It all started with a Full Military Tattoo and champagne reception and followed by a superb menu prepared by local Caterers, Ashbys and with a signature dish that was created by Anthony Worral-Thompson.

Music was provided by Bootleg Beatles and a celebrity compere entertained everyone immensely.

Aiming to  raise £125,000 for two very worthy charities:  ‘The Rifles Regimental Trust: Care for Casualties Appeal’ and ‘The Warrior Programme’, the event was a great way to do it.

Proceeds from the Help the Heroes gala will benefit ‘The Rifles Regiment Care For Casualties Appeal’ and ‘The Warrior Programme’.

An Auction was held and there was even a tank up for auction.



The Garden Museum

The Garden Museum, ‘one of London best small museums’ says The Daily Telegraph.

Situated by the River Thames and next to Lambeth Palace, The Garden Museum provides the perfect location for wedding receptions, corporate events and dinners.

The Museum’s garden provides a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of central London and is an ideal setting for a pre-dinner drinks reception or a barbeque and Adams Catering Hire continues to provide equipment for the many Caterers recommended by the Museum

The Garden’s focal point is the beautiful 17th Century inspired knot garden, which creates the perfect romantic setting for wedding photography.

Make a Statement with the Crystal Ice Chair

What a fantastic looking chair. Guaranteed to provoke comments like ‘WoW‘ at your next event.

This chair came onto the event scene about a year ago and has proved to be an outstanding winner in every catagory. From a smart summer wedding to a nightclub, the crystal ice chair can provide the look thats needed to look fresh and awe inspiring. As with many chairs the seat pads are inter changeable from ivory faux leather, to a large choice of plain colours to match your theming.

The chairs are injection moulded from a polycarbonate resin which is incredibly strong, yet it allows a certain amount of flex to give added comfort compared to wooden and metal alternatives. They are also
completely translucent which means their appearance can be transformed when subjected to different lighting effects
  • Made from 100% recyclable materials so they’re greener than green
  • Immensely strong and durable (practically bulletproof)
  • UV resistant which means they don’t discolour in sunlight
  • Seat Pads are interchangeable
  • Appearance changes under coloured light
  • 100% waterproof so they can be used outdoors (not the seat pads though)


Dress them up with a few simple flowers to look fresh and clean or put a spotlight on  to jazz it up and make it shine. Its your choice, but whatever you do its sure to outshine its nearest neighbour the gilt banqueting chair. So if you need chair hire and you want something to talk about, call Adams Catering Hire, and get the chair that dreams are made of.

Hog Roast for Help for Heroes sponsored by Adams

On Sunday 15th August, Adams Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire held a Charity Hog Roast in aid of ‘Help for Heroes’ and despite the poor weather we all had a great time.

The food was provided by Simply Fine Foods, a well established  Caterer offering a bespoke service for corporate and private clients alike.  Whether it is catering for a corporate lunch, a barbecue or a private dinner party, their aim is to ensure that everything they provide – the food, the wines and the service – add that essential ingredient to make your event a complete success. Tel; 020 8787 7043. The hog roast was absolutely fabulous with everyone going back for more.

A much needed marquee was also set up by Mannys Marquees who specialise in providing marquees for all occasions, large or small, corporate or private.  Whatever the size of your event they have the solution.

For the entertainment, a close up magician enthralled everyone and he even managed to make a diamond ring disappear (we got it back). A jazz band, a chocolate fountain and much more kept guests amused for the afternoon.  Each and everyone donated to this very worthy cause and we even had a real life ‘hero’ in our midst as one of the girls brought along a soldier friend who is just back from his tour of duty. Kim Rix (Kim Rix wedding photography) came along to take the photos of the day and capture some of the magic moments we all enjoyed.

One of the great things we found on our search was printed roses, yes, real roses printed with your message.  We had beautiful long stemmed red roses with the imprint ‘Help for Heroes – Sunday 15th August 2010’ on ours but you could have anything put on. British Speaking Roses is the company and they provided us with petals to decorate as well. Such a good service – quick delivery.

Adams Catering Hire was pleased to have been able to contribute in a small way to help such a worthy cause and if you need any help in organising your next event or you need furniture hire, give us a call and we will be so pleased to be able to help.
