Young Churchillians Meet! Inaugural Event Takes Place in London

The first meeting of Young Churchillians took place in London on Thursday, September 26. Altogether 225 people gathered at the Boisdale of Canary Wharf restaurant and jazz club for an evening sponsored by Pol Roger, Sir Winston Churchill’s favorite champagne. Former SAS commander Harry Holt spoke to the group of young professionals.

The successful event was organised by Young Churchillians UK Chairman George Repard.

George Repard and Catherine Katz conceived the idea of the Young Churchillians last year and collaborated on the concept with the kind and generous support of the ICS chairman Laurence Geller. Much is owed to Mr Geller for his enthusiasm and backing.

George Repard is the great-great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill and son of Jennie Churchill. Catherine Katz is an American historian and author of the forthcoming book The Daughters of Yalta.

Among the honored guests were George’s uncle—and International Churchill Society President—Randolph Churchill along with his wife Catherine; George’s mother Jennie Churchill; and ICS Chairman Laurence Geller, who presided over a successful auction to raise money for scholarships.
