ACE Charity Dinner

Date: November 2023
Venue: To Be Advised
6.30 pm start with reception drinks for a 7.15 pm sit down. Black Tie.

This is a wonderful venue and always an event not to be missed which sells out quickly. All proceeds from the raffle and auction on the night will go to The PM Trust.

Ruston Toms, Chairman of The PM Trust said ‘On behalf of myself and my fellow trustees we are enormously grateful to the ACE committee for choosing The PM Trust as their nominated charity. We are a small charity that has been supporting young hospitality workers in Greater London for over 70 years. The main purpose of the Trust is to help make hospitality the career of choice for young people and assist them with furthering their training and development by way of providing bursaries and grants.’

Ellis Wines
Ellis Wines An independent, family owned on-trade wine business, established in 1822. We have a rich history based on our traditional ethos of partnership and value.

Joseph Ellis started his wine business in 1822 – 200 years ago this year. At that time, the Ellis family was also running the Star & Garter Inn on Richmond Hill. However in 1864, Joseph’s son George decided to sell the hotel in order to focus on the wine business.

Initially he ran the business from 36-37 Leadenhall Street in London where all the deliveries were by horse-drawn carts. By 1926, the business needed to expand so it moved to Richmond and, besides benefiting from bigger offices and cellars, the business also acquired a fleet of vans. On the wall of the Richmond building (which originally belonged to Sir Whittaker Ellis and is now The Ivy) a vine was planted in 1840 and is still growing to this day!

Real Drinks Company
Real Drinks Company When founder David had all but given up alcohol, he found there was a lack of choice and nothing that paired with food in the same way as a wine. He knew there must be a better way so set about experimenting with fermentation, the taste profiles of different loose-leaf teas and the impact of conditioning and bottling on superior flavour.

After almost 2 years of tinkering, David had created a liquid with the depth of flavour he had been missing and shared it with the like-minded folk at The Pig. They agreed that this was like nothing else and became REAL’s very first listing.

David’s unconventional approach to creating that first batch of liquids that made their way to The Pig is embodied in everything that the team do today. His relentless attitude to progress means that the Sparkling Teas you taste today in a champagne bottle in places such as the Fat Duck, Le Gavroche and Clove Club are quite far from the early days; more refined, deeply flavoured, and with the complexity of a fine wine – a sparkling moment, without the compromise.
