The Lord Mayor's Big Curry


The Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch is a major annual initiative which takes place every April and is a lunch for 1,000 people in the Great Hall of the Guildhall. Hosted by the Lord Mayor, it is attended by City business people from UK and global companies and those working in the professions. The purpose is to raise money for ABF The Soldiers' Charity which supports soldiers and former soldiers and their families who have been affected by military service in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is expected that this one event will raise in the region of £250,000 on the day.

Such an achievement requires detailed organisation, and I am delighted to advise that, a few months ago, I was invited to join the 2013 Committee and have already attended my first meeting. Tonight however I was  in attendance at the Mansion House as the Master Marketor at a reception for the Livery Companies and Ward Clubs to launch the 2013 Lunch. Judging from the enthusiasm of the gathered throng it would seem that this is going to be another successful year for the Charity.

So do put the Thursday 18th April in your diary. Apart from a great lunch and excellent company there will a silent auction and draw prizes ranging from a night at the Mansion House through to tickets for Wimbledon, so definitely worth a flutter.
