Lord Mayors Big Curry Lunch – Thursday 30th March 2023
A message from our Chair of the Fundraising Committee, David Beard.
It is my pleasure to confirm that the Company of Watermen and Lightermen, along with other Livery Companies and distinguished guests, has once again decided to support the Charity fundraising efforts of the Lord Mayor of London by attending the
The Lord Mayor’s Curry Lunch
to be held at the Guildhall, EC2V 5AE
on Thursday 30th March
For anyone hearing of the Lord Mayor’s Curry Lunch for the first time, the lunch has been held on an almost annual basis since 2008 only interrupted by Covid.
Supported by the Lord Mayor, since inception until November 2021, the various lunches and fundraising work has raised over £2.5 million for our armed forces veterans of ABF The Soldiers Charity; The Royal Navy and Royal Marine Charity: The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund. Since 2019 some extra focus has been placed on a specialised Pain Management Programme for individual veterans with the end aim being to enable them to so conquer their pain to be able to enter meaningful employment. The course comes at a cost of £6,500 per veteran placed through this programme.
It is a very worthwhile cause.
It is a cause supported by the Lord Mayor and throughout many in the City.
