Big, very big,Curry Lunch

Yes, it's a very big logo--for a very big event. The Big Curry Lunch, held annually at Guildhall, is in support of The Soldiers' Charity--the Army's own national charity. Over 67 years old, the charity is providing a lifetime of support to soldiers, former soldiers and their families, whatever the circumstance, whatever the age, whatever the rank.The Patron is her Majesty the Queen.  The Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch in Guildhall is the flagship event for the National Big Curry Lunch Campaign which raises  £450,000 for the charity.

The Marketors, through the Marketors' Trust, have been regular supporters of the Charity, and this event,  together with 48 other Livery Companies from the Mercers and Grocers downwards. The Lord Mayor attends and in the absence of the Queen, His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent meets with us as sponsors before lunch.

The lunch is so well attended that even in Guildhall three sittings are necessary to accommodate everybody. This is indeed a very big event. There is a major Silent Auction and a major raffle ( I'm still waiting to hear if I have won a trip for two round the Champagne area.......) It's a memorable occasion for an extremely worthy cause.
