On 15 May, more than 550 of the City’s leading wealth management professionals gathered in the historic Merchant Taylors’ Hall for the 30th annual Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon.

For the third year running, this unique networking event was held in support of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT), and an incredible £125,000 was raised for the charity. The event was generously supported by headline sponsor CRUX Asset Management.

The Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon is a firmly established event in the City’s social calendar, and has developed a loyal following since its inception 30 years ago. Guests were served ethically sourced gulls’ eggs as well as traditional accompaniments, including smoked salmon and a selection of cheeses.

“The Cure Parkinson’s Trust Annual Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon was sold out a month before its 30th Anniversary,” said Rupert Phelps, Chairman of The Gulls’ Eggs Luncheon Committee. “This reflects the truly enduring support of so many people, both perennial and new sources alike.

"Our three simple aims: to raise funds for a sadly necessary charity, create useful business connections and have a whole heap of fun in the process, have resonated to make this one of the most loved and enduring highpoints in the calendar of people in wealth management and its related sectors. Please join with us as we plan the next three decades.”
The funds raised for CPT will be directed towards vital research into new treatments to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s disease. Around 145,000 people in the UK are living with Parkinson’s, and it is predicted that one in 37 people will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson’s in their lifetime. CPT funds innovative research around the world which is dedicated to finding new treatments that can slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s.
