Past Events

The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch 2023

The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch is one of the City of London’s biggest fundraising events supporting the veterans of His Majesty’s Armed Forces.

The focus of the event is helping veterans into employment. The renewed commitment as a result of this year’s Lunch is to fund veterans through the King Edward VII Hospital’s Centre for Veterans’ Health, the Pain Management Programme and Lifeworks programmes.

In addition to this, support has been offered to other employment-related initiatives through the three single service charities.

King Edward VII's Hospital Carol Concert - 13th December 2022

For the first time since the pandemic, we were delighted to host our annual Christmas Carol Concert for an evening of carols, readings and music with Sir Derek Jacobi, Victoria Smurfit and other special guests.

This year all proceeds from the evening went towards our ground-breaking Pain Management Programme and 100% Military Grants.

The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch 2022

Our partners at The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch came back for 2022.

The 2022 Lunch on Thursday 7th April 2022 was an extra-special occasion having been given permission to call the 2022 Lunch ‘The Lord Mayor’s Platinum Jubilee Big Curry’ in honour of The Queen’s extraordinary service to this country and to the Commonwealth over seventy years

The attendees raised money for our Pain Management Programme and to help change the lives of veterans whilst enjoying the company of the finest names in food, drink and entertainment.


Celebrating Christmas at St Marylebone Parish Church - 9th December 2019

Our Christmas evening marks the start of the festive season for many of our supporters, staff and their family members. Raising funds for our ‘Sponsor a Veteran’ appeal, Sir Derek Jacobi delighted guests with his rendition of A Politically Correct Christmas, whilst Jermain Jackman amazed all with his incredible vocal talents.

All proceeds from the event went towards the Sponsor a Veteran Appeal.

Annual Fundraising Gala Dinner - 1st October 2019

Last year we welcomed 150 guests to Fishmongers’ Hall in the City of London for our Gala Dinner to raise funds for our Sponsor a Veteran appeal.

During the evening Professor Sir Simon Wessely spoke eloquently about military healthcare and psychological medicine. Caroline Beazley (one of our veterans) gave a moving account about her experience in the Armed Forces and subsequent treatment through our Pain Management Programme.

Thanks to the generous donations to the appeal, and fundraising on the night, we raised over £125,000!

An Evening with Henry Blofeld – Lord’s Cricket Ground, 10th June 2019

130 guests braved the typical British weather to join us for our ‘Blow out with Blowers’ on 10th June 2019.

Henry regaled our guests (in his own inimitable style) with uproarious anecdotes, skillfully cajoled by our MC for the evening, Roger Dakin.

To raise funds during the night guests were treated to array of lots that they could bid for in our silent and live auctions. But the main attraction – apart from Henry (!) – was the raffle in which one lucky guest won 10 VIP tickets and hospitality for Day 2 of the Ashes, worth over £10,000!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our guests we raised over £20,000 on the night in support of King Edward VII’s Hospital and its charitable work delivered through the Centre for Veterans’ Health.

Thank you!

Berry Bros. & Rudd Wine Tasting 2019

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.
