Spice Up Your Day at the Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch 2015

The hotly anticipated Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch is back for the eighth year running to raise money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Held in the Guildhall on Thursday 16th April 2015, the charity lunch has raised more than £1.1 million since its launch in 2008, providing vital support for Service men and women around the country.

Guests will be treated to delicious curries, while enjoying the company of a member of the Royal Family, as well as some of the biggest names in the City, sport and Government. Also present will be high-ranking members of the British Army and recently returned soldiers from Afghanistan.

The Lunch will once again be hosted by the Rt Hon The Lord Mayor, Alderman Alan Yarrow who said:

“The City of London is a long-standing and committed supporter of the UK Armed Forces. Please support The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, in order that we can continue to help those soldiers and former soldiers who, together with their families, have given so much of themselves in service of our stability and security.”

Guests will also have the chance to bid on money-can’t-buy prizes and experiences in the Silent Auction and Draw, including a fabulous five night stay for two at the glamorous One&Only Cape Town Resort, the opportunity to open Tower Bridge (Champagne included) and a day with the soldiers and officers of the Royal Horse Artillery.

Tickets and corporate packages are available to buy now starting at £95 for all food and alcohol. To book your ticket, contact Amy Kenyon akenyon@soldierscharity.org

Notes

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the British Army’s national Charity. Since 1944, it has been helping soldiers, veterans and families who are in need. Its oldest beneficiary last year was 108, its youngest just a few months old. It helped more than 5,000 individuals last year with specialist wheelchairs, respite holidays, care home fees and grants to specialist military charities. It relies entirely on public donations, spending almost £8million annually on those who’ve done their duty to their country. For more information, or to donate, visit www.soldierscharity.org.
