The Order’s traditional pre-Christmas lunch took place at the Savoire Faire restaurant in London’s West End.

“We had a lovely Christmas lunch,’ writes Dame Simone Simmons. “The ambiance was wonderful, and it was so nice to see everyone and catch up. The food, of course, was delicious. We must get together more often and put the world to rights!”

As a result of our fundraising at the lunch, we have been able to commit a further £500 to the work of our Relief Corps.
