The PB Lunch Club is an exclusive dining club set up for both men and women to raise funds for Action Medical Research.

The club meets four times a year for lunch at the Peterborough Marriott Hotel, Lynch Wood, Peterborough, PE2 6GB to enjoy good food and interesting speakers, some well-known and others not! Occasionally there are special evening events.

Why the PB Lunch Club? Paddington Bear is the charity mascot and Action Medical Research is the only charity to be granted that privilege by the late Michael Bond, creator of Paddington Bear and author of the Paddington Bear books. Michael’s daughter, Karen Jankel, has kindly agreed to be the Club’s Patron.

The membership year runs from October to September and the joining fee is ONLY £20 per year for which you will receive a membership pack. Also, by becoming a member, you will be actively helping to “Touch a tiny life”!

Members register between 12.00 noon and 12.30 and lunch starts promptly at 12.30pm. Our guest speaker commences at approximately 1.30pm and members have the opportunity to converse with the speaker afterwards. Usually, all members have left by 3.30pm.

If you would like to support the charity by becoming a member of this exclusive charity dining club, please complete the membership form online - click on "Book online". above
