The Victory Services Club (VSC) welcomed over 120 guests to its Annual Lunch 2016 on 21 September, attracting military charities, including Help for Heroes, Veterans Aid, Blind Veterans and the Army Benevolent Fund.
A large number of military associations and serving personnel, who all help to deliver welfare support to the serving and retired members of the Armed Forces, were also present with their families. Senior guests included The Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Steve Summers, and the Lady Mayoress, Mrs Kate McCarthy.
Nigel Beet of the VSC said: “Our Annual Lunch is a very important occasion for the Club and the day was an excellent opportunity to confirm our support for the UK Armed Forces and their families. The Club is able to provide a mix of free weekends to serving personnel and their immediate families who are recommended to us by military charities, or the Unit’s Welfare staff, and to offer subsidised bedroom rates for individuals returning from overseas deployments.
“Through this lunch many more charities are aware of how the Victory Services Club can deliver an excellent lunch, in impressive surroundings, with dedicated staff and that we would be a perfect venue to support fundraising activities, or be a Central London location for meetings and conferences. We have been thrilled with the positive response we have already received from the event.”
