Event description

Description

Join us on Thursday 4th April 2019 for the 12th annual Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch held at the historic Guildhall in the heart of the City. The Lunch unites the City of London to show their 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.

As we move towards the 12th Lunch, we do so with great excitement and a renewed sense of purpose. For two reasons. Firstly, we hope that the proceeds from the 12th Lunch will take us to – and beyond – the figure of £2 million contributed to serving soldiers, veterans and their families over the lifetime of The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch.

Secondly, for the next three years, The Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch will link with the Civic and Mayoral theme of employment and employability. As part of our giving we will provide financial support for veterans to take part in a programme designed to help them manage their pain and subsequently find meaningful work. One of the biggest inhibitors to veterans getting into the world of work and sticking at it is pain. The causal factors involved are complex, whether physical or psychological. 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, as part of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity grant-giving, up to 18 veterans on this programme in each of the next three years.
