Our annual Ladies Autumn Lunch was held at the stunning venue of Epsom Downs Racecourse on Thursday 27 October with special guest speaker, Michael Buerk.
Michael Buerk is an English journalist and newsreader, whose reporting of the Ethiopian famine on 23 October 1984 inspired the Band Aid charity record and, subsequently, the Live Aid concert. Buerk has been the host of BBC Radio 4's The Moral Maze since 1990.
On Sunday 31 July, we had 25 amazing riders take part in the Prudential RideLondon to raise funds for QEF's work with disabled adults and children. Joining almost 30,000 people in Britain’s biggest ever sportive event, our team smashed it through the 100 miles and we couldn’t be prouder!
During the lead up to the big day, the team have been working tirelessly to raise as much money as they can for QEF and so far have raised over £21,000! An absolutely amazing amount which will make a huge difference to the lives of disabled adults and children.
QEF would like to let our supporters and friends of the charity know about the BBC Radio 4 Appeal that is being launched to raise funds to allow MERU, a member of the QEF Family of Charities, build more Bugzis.
We encourage you to share the word and tune into the appeal which will air on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday August 7th at 7.54am.
QEF was asked by the the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon to assess accessibility for wheelchair users at this year's Wimbledon tennis championships.
Clients from QEF's Neuro Rehabilitation Service at Banstead were accompanied by QEF's Property Manager Alvin Allison, to check that all was well in terms of accessibility and provisions for disabled people.
After checking that all was well and carrying out a survey amongst other wheelchair users, it was also essential to check that the day's tennis was on the ball. What an ace day!
