Last year, we welcomed over 400 guests to the beautiful St Marylebone Parish Church, and we are delighted that the church will once again play host to our Christmas event. We are thrilled to announce that we will be joined by Sir Derek Jacobi and Jermain Jackman (winner of The Voice 2014), along with other celebrity contributors. Tickets are priced at £25 per person (includes mulled wine and minced pies).
All proceeds will go towards Veterans’ Health.

On 1st October 2019, 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. Through the appeal our goal is to increase the number of veterans we help by 40% over the next five years.
The Fishmongers’ Company is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London, and among the most ancient of the City Guilds, spanning over 700 years. Located on London Bridge and overlooking the Thames, the Hall is home to enviable views and renowned for its delicious cuisine.
During the evening Professor Sir Simon Wessely spoke eloquently about military healthcare and psychological medicine and one of our veterans, Caroline Beazley gave a moving account about her experience in the Armed Forces and subsequent treatment through our Pain Management Programme.
In order to raise funds throughout the night, guests had the opportunity to bid on various lots during our live and silent auctions. The evening was rounded off with a performance by Fascinating Aida, the critically acclaimed satirical cabaret act.
We would like to thank all our guests who gave so generously and in particular to those who donated items for the raffle, silent and live auctions.
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.
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.
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!
