On Tuesday 28 September, over 300 of the City’s leading wealth management professionals gathered in the historic Drapers Hall on London’s Throgmorton Avenue for the 33rd annual Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon, raising over £60,000 for Parkinson’s research.
After over a year of virtual events, the Gulls’ Eggs Committee were delighted to be able to welcome guests to this well-established networking event in person. As the luncheon was moved to autumn this year, in line with seasonal produce guests were offered a selection of canapes, smoked salmon and cheeses rather than the traditional, ethically sourced gulls’ eggs (only available around May). Attendees also enjoyed a raffle, having the chance to win a variety of fantastic prizes.
This Luncheon is one of the most beloved and enduring highpoints in the calendar of people in wealth management and its related sectors. Having avoided a break in what is now a third of a century through last year’s virtual Luncheon, it is with equal measure a pleasure and relief to welcome our guests in person to Drapers’ Hall, as we raise funds for a sadly necessary charity.Rupert Phelps, Chair of the Gulls’ Eggs Committee
It was fantastic to see so many friendly faces come together once again in support of our work to find a cure. Each year we are humbled by the generosity of attendees and sponsors, as well as the hard work and dedication of the Gulls’ Eggs Committee. We are so grateful to have been a beneficiary of this event for the sixth year running.Rick Lay, Director of Fundraising and Marketing
