The Queen Elizabeth Foundation for Disabled People (QEF) and The Ladies Lunch Committee have great pleasure in inviting you to our forthcoming Ladies Autumn Lunch on Thursday 20 October at The Duchess’s Stand, Epsom Downs Racecourse.
There will be a shopping Fayre from 10:00 - 13:00 where you can shop the finest stalls that Surrey and beyond has to offer whilst sipping a glass of bubbles!
Our wonderful Guest Speaker to be announced soon...
This year the Ladies Autumn Lunch is raising funds towards fully completing and equipping an en-suite bedroom in our new Care and Rehabilitation Centre (CRC).
The Care and Rehabilitation Centre (CRC) was born and is designed to help people regain key skills and rebuild their life following a stroke, neurological illness, acquired brain injury,
incomplete spinal injury. Modern, airy, spacious, incorporating 48 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and assistive voice activated technology, this landmark building allows clients greater independence, gives them greater control over their personal space, and supports self-motivation and independence. The building has been environmentally designed using daylighting and modern renewable building materials, including solar panels, and is delivering beyond expectations. It includes a modern fully-equipped gym with hoists, which is designed for use by both residential clients and out-patients, so that clients can continue their rehabilitation with QEF after they return home. The therapy rooms, including the innovative sensory room, are designed for our highly skilled physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and clinical psychology teams to use.
Your support at the lunch will enable QEF to continue to transform lives and rebuild futures. There are many ways you can further support us on the day, including bidding in our auction and donating some unwanted clothing or handbags to our retail shops.
Caring Couture is back this year! Following its launch in 2018, Caring Couture – The POWER of one piece, raised thousands of pounds for QEF. We kindly ask if you could support QEF by bringing along one item (or more) of clothing or a handbag to donate to QEF for resale across our retail stores to the Ladies Spring Lunch. There will be a concierge service at the registration desk to collect your donations. Please note we also accept mens clothing!
