CORONAVIRUS: Although restrictions are lifting, we are still taking extraordinary precautions to keep you safe Coronavirus update
King Edward VII’s Hospital’s events, including our fundraising events, are held in exclusive locations. You can mingle among friends who share your support of the Hospital, and enjoy making new connections.
Our partners at The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch have moved their very special event online this year.
Now you can raise money for our Pain Management Programme and change the lives of veterans from the comfort of your own home, all whilst enjoying the company of the finest names in food, drink and entertainment.
Unfortunately, the dinner has been cancelled this year.
Last year 150 guests were treated to an unforgettable evening at the stunning Fishmongers’ Hall in the City of London. Raising funds for our Sponsor a Veteran appeal, guests had the opportunity to bid on an array of lots during our live and silent auctions followed by a raucous performance by Fascinating Aida – the critically acclaimed satirical cabaret act.
Update June 2020: it is with sincere regret that we have decided to cancel our annual Christmas carol evening at St Marylebone Parish Church this year.
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.
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!
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.
