Vanilla Catering & Events

Vanilla & the ellen macarthur cancer trust

It’s the start of a new financial year so a new year and a new charity. Last year for every wedding or three course corporate event we catered for we donated 20p per head to our Frank Water ( Every Pound we raised for Frank Water Projects gave one person access to clean water for life, hopefully we made a little difference and we will continue to support them by buying their bottled water.

This year we have picked a charity a little closer to home the EllenMacarthur Trust (

The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national organisation that gives young people between the ages of 8-24 who have suffered from cancer and leukaemia the opportunity to take part in the new and fantastic experience of sailing.

The Trust was launched by the internationally-renowned sailor Ellen MacArthur on 2nd January 2003.

For every guest at your wedding or event we will donate 20p to the trust so we hope that a happy occasion such as a wedding or party will bring a little happiness for young people aged between 8-24 by allowing them to sail to help them regain their confidence, on their way to recovery from cancer, leukaemia and other serious illness.
