Hosted by the Chairman of London Scottish Malcolm Offord the St Andrew’s Day Lunch at The Sheraton Grand has been bringing together the Scottish diaspora and the London Scottish business, sports, arts and entertainment communities each year to network and celebrate St Andrew’s Day, Scotland’s national holiday. The event also honours individuals who have made a significant contribution to Scotland and the Scottish community with the Great London Scot Awards.
Please save the date for this unmissable date in the London Scottish calendar. Further details will be released shortly

In addition to raising funds for London Scottish each year, the St Andrew’s Day Lunch partners with a nominated charity.

Fundraising on the day is by an exclusive silent and live auction, raffle, as well as table and individual donations.
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks, the founder of Maggie’s who lived with advanced cancer for two years. During that time she used her knowledge and experience to create a blueprint for a new type of care. Maggie’s Centres are built around her belief that people should not “lose the joy of living in the fear of dying”.
Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need. The Centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.
The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 20 Centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and abroad. Maggie’s also has an Online Centre.
