Charity Dinner Party – By Ambience team support fantastic work of Children’s Respite Trust
At By Ambience, each year we donate one dinner party for six guests to a local charity for auction at their event. This year we chose to donate a prize to a very worthy cause, the Children’s Respite Trust. The charity does fantastic work to provide respite care for families with children who have various disabilities across Sussex and Kent. The charity gives families the opportunity to have a short break and offers vital support.
The charity is currently expanding to introduce a day centre in Uckfield where children and families can visit to take part in fun activities. This means the charity must raise vital funds to kit out the new property, and also ensure the project is able to run and provide respite for years to come.
This year our dinner party prize was on offer at the popular Ladies Night, a regular fundraising event in the Children’s Respite Trusts’ Calendar. Unfortunately I was unable to attend this years’ dinner over the summer due to other event commitments as wedding season in full swing. However, having caught up with the organisers and attendees, it sounds as if the event was as spectacular as ever, with our dinner party raising over £350 for the charity.
The dinner party we offered as a prize was for six people to enjoy dining within the comfort of their own home. The winner was Sarah Lawler, so I met with Sarah and her friends to agree a delicious menu that would suit all guests’ taste buds and dietary requirements. Ash Sullivan, the By Ambience Catering Manager cooked the delicious three course meal whilst Daryl from our front of house team served Sarah and her guests in true By Ambience style. You can find out what Sarah had to say about the evening below!
Dinner parties can be the perfect way to celebrate at a variety of events from a family celebration or hen party to an office lunch or board room dinner. By Ambience offers a variety of menus that can be suitable for a number of different occasions in your own home or private space. What’s more, we provide all of the equipment necessary to cook, serve and clear away after so you can enjoy a fuss free event.

‘We used By Ambience for a private dinner party for six people after winning a charity auction. Gary was superbly professional right from the word go. He helped us create a stunning menu, and adapted dishes to meet individual dietary (and taste!) requirements. His team of two (chef and waiter) arrived promptly at our home and brought absolutely everything with them they needed, even the cutlery! The service was unobtrusive and we never once felt we were sharing our evening with anyone, even though the open plan layout of our home meant we were all in the same room! The food was divine and they even cleared up afterwards. If you are looking for a really special experience then I highly recommend Ambience for ALL your catering needs, not just private dining experiences.’
