Our longest running event, the Sporting Lunch is the industry’s annual kick off to Christmas and regularly raises over half a million pounds for the charity. Now moving to the InterContinental® London, The O2 from 2022.

The most senior commercial and trading teams catch up informally with their colleagues, whilst hearing from a great line up of sporting heroes. There really is nothing else quite like this event in the industry.

Filled with sporting heroes from the past and present, the previous line-ups have included the likes of David Coulthard, Natalie Pinkham, Lawrence Dallaglio, Graeme Swann, ‘Tanni’ Baroness Grey-Thompson, Max Whitlock and Mike and Zara Tindall and many more.

2022 Sporting Heroes line up coming soon.  

“This event is unique in the industry calendar and there is nothing to top this. I think most people would say this is the one event they never want to miss, and it just seems to get bigger every year” - Judith Batchelar, Director of Sainsbury’s Brand.

"The Sporting Lunch is the highlight of the trade calendar for me. It signals the countdown to Christmas and it’s always a great chance to catch up with industry colleagues and meet some incredible sporting heroes. I’m very proud to chair the event committee and help raise money for such an important charity as GroceryAid." - Marcus Freer, Managing Director, SHS Sales & Marketing (GB)
