LONDON, July 18, 2011 -

The second annual Polo for Heroes all-day event, which
raises money for members of Britain’s Armed Forces wounded while
serving their country, takes place in St Albans, Herts., on
Saturday 23 July 2011.

Last year’s inaugural event raised nearly £18,000 for the cause
- and this year it will once again take place at St Albans Polo
Club, with polo matches involving local and Forces teams, including
one captained by ex-World Middleweight boxing champ Steve Collins,
plus a day of great food and entertainment.

The idea for Polo for Heroes was hatched early last year
between rising culinary star and celebrated London restaurant
Launceston Place head chef Tristan Welch, polo fanatic Clare
, and members of St Albans Polo Club when they all met at
the highly successful Chefs for Heroes fundraising

And this year once again Tristan will be personally cooking for
VIP guests, while in addition there will be a pop-up Gaucho Grill
restaurant and bar for the picnic guests to also enjoy open until

Doors open at 1pm, with the polo tournament taking place from
1.30pm, while an on-site auction will be followed by an evening of
entertainment including a live 70s disco band in the VIP

Entrance on the day is £5, with spectators offered the choice of
bringing a picnic or taking advantage of on-site catering.
Alternatively, VIP guests can pay £100 per person, with up to 10
people on a table, to include a champagne reception,
three-course gourmet dinner prepared by Tristan Welch and evening
entertainment until midnight.   The event is sponsored by
Camino Real Polo Country Club in Argentina.

Tristan said: “It’s a great day out for all the family,
especially if you’ve never witnessed the excitement of a polo

“We had a great time last year and managed to raise a fantastic
amount of money for such a worthy charity - this year we hope to do
even better.”
