The tenth annual Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch is to take place on Thursday 6th April 2017 and will feature HRH The Duke of York as its Guest of Honour. The Lunch, in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, has raised more £1.5 million since its launch in 2007 and attracts some of the leading figures in Government and the City.
The 2017 Lunch is hosted for the first time by the Rt Hon The Lord Mayor, Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley, who will be accompanied by Alderman and Sheriff Peter Estlin and Alderman and Sheriff William Russell.
The Lord Mayor Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley comments: “The City of London has always been a proud supporter and a committed advocate of the UK Armed Forces. We are therefore honoured host the Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch, supporting those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan through the National Charity of the British Army, The Soldiers’ Charity, so that we can give something back to those who have given so much of themselves.”
