Event description
Join us on Thursday 2nd April 2020 for the 13th annual Lord Mayor's Big Curry Lunch held at the historic Guildhall in the heart of the City of London. The Lunch demonstrates the City's support for members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces and veterans through the three National Service Charities; ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund. 
The Lunch is hosted by the Lord Mayor and attended by a Royal Guest of Honour each year. Previous Royal Guests include HRH The Prince of Wales, HRH The Princess Royal and HRH The Duke of Sussex. In a relaxed and informal atmosphere, guests enjoy a delicious curry lunch, including unlimited wine and beer. Every year guests include senior leaders from the City’s business and professional communities, members of Livery Companies and Ward Clubs; senior officers of the British Army and the other services and members of both Houses of Parliament. 
We are delighted that part of the money raised from the 2020 Lunch will provide financial support for veterans to take part in a programme designed to help prepare them for employment. This is a programme the Lunch is supporting for 3 years, from 2019 to 2021. King Edward VII Hospital’s Centre for Veterans’ Health has developed - and tested - a six-month-long Pain Management Programme specifically for veterans. The Lunch will fund up to 18 veterans on this programme each year from 2019 - 2021, as part of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity grant-giving. This project will also align the Lunch with the Civic and Mayoral theme of employment and employability. It will cost up to £120,000 each year (£6,500 per veteran), which will still leave us with a significant sum to fund other programmes that support employment and employability and the wider work of the three National Service Charities.
