Charity Sleep Out Challenge

February 4th, 2014

January 2014

Cafe Sunlight was delighted to support the MHS Homes Charity Sleep Out Challenge.  Sixty brave souls made camp in their car park on Saturday 25th January with nothing but cardboard boxes to shelter them from the wind!  So it only seemed fair that we should keep them going with some slow cooked Moroccan lamb and butternut squash and bean ragout to keep them warm.  The team were on hand until 2am with hot coffee & homemade cakes to keep everyone’s spirit up!

Summer and autumn news

October 22nd, 2013

It has been a very busy summer and autumn for the Cafe Sunlight team! We served a lovely hot lunch for 150 delegates at a conference on impact investing at the Guildhall in July. In September we had the great honour of catering for Ian and Silke’s wedding at the Harrow Museum and Heritage Centre and we served canapés and drinks to the ClearlySo angel investors in Covent Garden. In October we catered for the first ever Global Impact Investors’ Network two day conference at the Guildhall – a seated hot lunch for 160 followed by canapé and drinks reception for 400 guests. Little Bird Gin made its first appearance at a Cafe Sunlight event and the Alpha Zeta wines went down very well. On day two we served up a lovely hot fork lunch for 400 hungry delegates.

16th & 17th April

Business in the Community engaged Cafe Sunlight to cater for their first ever Responsible Business Week. The event was held at the Guildhall in the City of London on 16th & 17th April. Over 350 delegates were served lunch and the conference was followed by three canapé and drinks receptions for 450. Dave’s homemade mini chilli cheese burgers went down particularly well and guests enjoyed a very decent glass or two of our Vermentino and Merlot/Grenache from the Languedoc. Chegworth Valley organic pressed juices were served at lunch and at the receptions and all hot drinks were fair-trade as standard. After a day of impeccably smooth service we had change of venue for day two to the historical Gibson hall in Bishopsgate (formerly the National Provincial Bank of England) and an early start where guests enjoyed Audrey’s homemade breakfast muffins, pastries and coffees followed by a sandwich lunch.
