14 Aug 20. SSAFA Defence Industry Charitable Dinner cancelled. As a result of the continuing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s SSAFA Defence Industry Charitable Dinner which was due to take place on Wednesday 21 October 2020. The new date of the dinner is Tuesday 23 February 2021. The event will take place at 8 Northumberland Avenue, as previously planned. The event will be hosted by General Sir Nick Carter GCB CBE DSO ADC Gen, Chief of the Defence Staff and The Rt Hon Ben Wallace MP, Secretary of State for Defence will deliver the evening’s keynote speech.
If your organisation had already purchased a table for the postponed 2020 event, the payment will be allocated to your table for the updated February 2021 date.
In addition to the new February date, we are also aiming for the Defence Industry Charitable Dinner 2021 to take place later in the year in November 2021. To clarify, we will host two dinners next year. As I’m sure you will appreciate, having a year without the charity’s premier fundraising event would have a significant effect on our finances as we aim to deliver continued support to the Armed Forces community.
I am sure that you understand that the postponement of this year’s dinner will ensure that all guests and staff are safe. Additionally, we are monitoring government guidelines and working closely with the venue to ensure that all health and safety regulations are met.
Please would you register for your table via this link.
When registering, you will have the option to request an invoice from SSAFA or pay by card. If it is the former, I will issue you an invoice in due course.

Don’t hesitate to give me a call with any queries and thank you for your support and patience.
