We have raised almost £50,000 in aid of the Order of St George’s works in Ukraine through a second fundraising dinner.

The Golden Hearts Gala Dinner, held at Hogan Lovells in London, saw people from across the sector come together to help raise much needed funds for those impacted by the war in the Ukraine. 

Funds raised will help provide medical equipment such as tourniquets and basic medical training for those on the frontline. 

BM’s Ukrainian team members share their stories

The event saw a panel of BM’s Ukrainian team members invited to tell their stories and share their hopes for the future, as well as a charity auction.

In partnership with Hogan Lovells and Ellis Wines

The event took place on 26 October at Hogan Lovells’ London headquarters with a menu overseen by Adam Byatt, chef-patron of Michelin-starred Trinity in Clapham and a consultant chef for BM. 

Following a canapé and Champagne reception, guests were served cured salmon with heritage beetroots, cucumber, keta and buttermilk; fillet of Cumbrian beef with Roscoff onion, lovage emulsion, pommes Anna and truffled bone marrow jus; and Islands Chocolate marquise with figs and fig leaf oil.

Proceeds from the event will also go towards the Order of St George’s work in supplying medical and other humanitarian supplies to refugees and displaced persons in Poland and Moldova, and in Ukraine itself.

Angus Brydon, MD, BM, said: “The conflict in Ukraine is ongoing, mustn’t forget, we are doing what we can to continue supporting those affected.

“Through our efforts, we can make a difference in so many lives. The funds we raised will once again provide vital medical equipment and training for the citizens of Ukraine. 

“One year on from our last event, which raised in excess of £40,000, we have our own Ukraine family members and this really means so much more to all of us.”

The Order of St George supports charitable and humanitarian projects around the world, focusing on charities that work with current and former service personnel, and Christian communities suffering religious persecution.
