For infrequent announcements and updates about Flannels for Heroes
Welcome to Flannels for Heroes
Flannels for Heroes is a garden party held in the heart of Chelsea at the height of summer. It is celebration of traditional Britishness to raise money and awareness for Heroes charities. All proceeds go directly to the nominated charities each year. To date, Flannels for Heroes has raised over £175,000 for Help for Heroes, Combat Stress, Walking with the Wounded and the On Course Foundation.
The first match starts at 10:00am and the second commences at 1:00pm. The winners of each match compete in a final and the day concludes with the awards ceremony at around 8:00pm.
All players are provided with a pair of traditional English flannels, commemorative cricket shirts, jumpers to match their team colours and a cap.
Guests and players are treated to first-class hospitality throughout the day from a leading London caterer: Rhubarb, The Admirable Crighton and Blue Strawberry have all been picked in the past.
There will be no Flannels for Heroes in 2016, but the event will return in 2017.
There is a maximum of 400 guests at Burton Court for lunch and tea, to watch the cricket and participate in the day. A celebrity auction is conducted after lunch and a silent auction runs throughout the day, each carrying a selection of outstanding prizes to raise money for the causes. The day is packed with fun, frivolity and friendship, and the cricket provides an entertaining backdrop for the garden party.
