Square Mile Salute

Support wounded British troops by taking part in the Square Mile Salute on 10 February at the Guildhall. The evening kicks off with a canapé reception led by London Mayor Boris Johnson, followed by a five-course banquet hosted by Brian Turner. Chefs including Albert Roux and Jason Atherton have each devised one of the courses, which have also been expertly matched to the selected wines. Top chocolatier William Curley provides the petits fours. After the meal, Jeremy Clarkson will assist the auctioneer as bids are taken for prizes that include a holiday to Richard Branson’s private Caribbean retreat, Necker Island. The event begins at 6.15pm. Tables, each seating 10 guests, cost £3,500 plus VAT. Money raised will help fund the building and maintenance of personnel recovery centres, which support wounded troops.
