Past Events - Berry Bros. & Rudd Wine Tasting

We were honoured to be joined by over 50 guests at our exclusive Berry Bros. & Rudd wine tasting event on 12th March 2019.

Jane MacQuitty delighted guests, as ever, with her expert knowledge: pitting New World against Old World wines.

Unsurprisingly, our raffle prizes were wine related, and many congratulations to our winners:
Richard Fairburn who walked away with a bottle of each of the wines tasted throughout the evening. Peter Reilly was the welcome recipient of three bottles of Berry Bros. & Rudd Champagne, and our very own Fundraising Manager, Alexandra Stainov, was the worthy winner of  the much coveted Berry Bros. & Rudd award winning book, ‘Exploring and Tasting Wine: A Wine Course with Digressions’.

As the evening due to a close, all guests departed with a goody bag containing a Berry Bros. & Rudd Champagne stopper and corkscrew.

Thanks to the generosity of all who attended we raised over £6,000.

Carol Service 2018

For many of our loyal supporters our traditional Carols, Readings & Music for Christmas held at St Marylebone Parish Church marks the beginning of the festive season.

Over 400 guests joined us to hear Sir Derek Jacobi gave a powerful reading of Refugee Blues (W H Auden) and Jermain Jackman (winner of The Voice 2014) stunned the audience with his live performance of O Holy Night.

To round off the evening, Mark Heard (Head Chef) and his team treated guests to home-made mince pies and mulled wine!

Annual Reception 2018

On 27 September 2018, over 250 guests gathered in the Great Hall of the Royal Hospital Chelsea for our Annual Reception.

We marked the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Given our deep rooted military heritage it seemed fitting to hold this year’s Annual Reception at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and we were delighted to welcome so many Chelsea Pensioners who kept our guests entertained!

The evening was dedicated to the ‘Past, Present & Future’ of the Hospital and our 300 guests were able to discover more about our history through a specially curated exhibition of photos, artefacts and records taken from the Hospital’s archives. Particularly poignant was the case record of a young officer wounded in Amiens on the 27th September 1918 – a hundred years ago to the day of our reception.

Sir William Rollo KCB CBE spoke eloquently about King Edward VII’s Hospital during the First World War, and our continued support of veterans today through our Centre for Veterans’ Health.

We were delighted to have raised nearly £116,000 towards the Autumn Appeal thanks to your generous support.
