The Schmidt Wimbledon Charity Ball in aid of STEM4 last weekend raised more than £20,000 for the local Charity to enable them to continue the incredible work they are doing with families in and around the Merton Area.


The evening was held at Cannizaro House and included a luxurious champagne reception, delicious 3 course meal prepared by the newly accredited AA 3 Rosette restaurant at Cannizaro House, as well as live entertainment from Comedian Ian Irving. The raffle had some incredible prizes and a nail-biting live Auction saw Mr and Mrs Paul Lambden successfully bid for a fully fitted Schmidt Kitchen worth £25,000.

Dr Nihara Krause, Founder and CEO of STEM4 said,

"We are incredibly indebted to Charley Jones from Schmidt Kitchens who organised the Ball with Heather Bechman our Fundraising Lead. It was a wonderful evening and we are so grateful for everyone’s generosity to the Charity. It will be a great investment for our future”.

Charley Jones, Commercial Relationship Manager of Schmidt said, 

“We are absolutely delighted with the spectacular success of the evening. This event was about giving something back to a community that has accepted us as part of it and raising over £20,000 for STEM4 shows just how much this same community wants to support its local charities. It was incredible to see a room of mostly strangers pull together to make sure that STEM4 can continue improving the lives of local teenagers and their families and we are so proud to be a part of that".
