Sporting Lunch is GroceryAid’s longest running event and is one of the most popular in the calendar. Together 1,300 guests, including senior commercial and trading teams from all areas of the industry, gather to support GroceryAid and raise over £1,000,000 for colleagues in need.
Natalie Pinkham hosts an afternoon of entertainment with appearances and discussions from over 30 sporting heroes, both past and present. Previously hosted sporting legends included Roy Hodgson CBE, Lauren Steadman MBE, Zara Phillips, Mike Tindall, Nick Hamilton, Rebecca Adlington and most recently, Sir Mo Farah CBE, Jonnie Peacock, Beth Tweddle MBE and Rachel Yankey OBE.
Renowned for its incredible networking opportunities, entertainment and three-course lunch, tickets to this iconic event sell out quickly.
"More and more people have fallen on hard times so it’s fantastic that we can help our own. We have raised loads of money, which is the main thing, but what a line-up!” Marcus Freer, Managing Director, SHS
“The Sporting Lunch is so important because it is our big chance to really thank the industry.” Hannah Boon, Wholesale Director, Diageo
