On Thursday 5th July approximately seventy Company Members and their guests including our new Master, Phillip Hagon QPM, attended the ‘Big Curry’ lunch in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. The event was once again held at the offices of Gratte Brothers Security Management Ltd now for the seventh consecutive year. A toast was made before the lunch in memory of Gratte’s Chef Barry Lucas who sadly passed away the previous year and who had been instrumental in helping get the Big Curry Lunch off the ground seven years previously. The Indian fare that followed was excellent and well received by all. In addition, the curry was fittingly accompanied by several bottles of Cobra beer that had been kindly donated by DVS Ltd. We are also extremely grateful to all at Gratte Brothers for their continued support in hosting and sponsoring this annual event. It was clear to see from the number of empty plates that the lunch had once again been a great success especially considering that we also raised approximately £1200 for ABF The Soldiers Charity.
