Expectations of a successful 50th Guinness and Oyster Luncheon at Mansion House were totally surpassed with a record breaking total of £91,892.89 raised for a new specialist care and rehabilitation centre which will help people to recover from brain injuries.
While the Guinness and oysters naturally took the starring role, Mark Howarth, a former brain injury resident, spoke about his experiences recovering from a brain haemorrhage that left him with serious cognitive and communication issues. His dramatic improvement, he said, could not have happened without QEF.

Throughout 2015, staff members at ExxonMobil’s Leatherhead Office have been supporting MERU an Epsom based charity that designs and creates equipment for children with disabilities. They recently visited MERU, to view one of the charity’s Bugzi powered wheelchairs for children, which their efforts have funded.
