On a wet and windy day in June, the team headed down to London for the long-awaited launch of ‘Food for thought…and brain,’ The Society’s first ever cook book. Regional Representative for Hampshire, Tim Bond, has spent months putting the book together with help from the team at Encephalitis HQ. We secured sponsorship, pledges and some wonderful recipes from top chefs around the country. Taking place at the incredible Cannon Bridge Rooftop Gardens, the event was complimented by stunning views down the River Thames and a touch of sunshine later in the afternoon. Around 100 of our lovely Members and special guests made the trip to London for the event and to get their hands on the book before anyone else. There were cooking demonstrations from Tim Bond and Tonia Buxton, who rustled up a section of healthy and easy to make dips and snacks to whet the appetite.
The event was also used to welcome three new Vice Presidents to The Society. Richard Lockwood first came into contact with the charity through his work with The October Club. He was blown away by Ava’s presentation to their charity selection committee and has met with Ava several times to offer advice and guidance. He was delighted to have been invited to become a Vice-President, and we’re extremely grateful for his support. We’re looking forward to working with Richard long into the future. Tiggy and Robert Sutton were also inaugurated as Vice-Presidents, although due to unforeseen circumstances, they were unable to make it to the event itself. Tiggy and Robert lost their son, Jonny, to Encephalitis in 2008 and have been staunch supporters of our work as well as dedicated fundraisers ever since. We’re delighted to have them on-board and are certain that they will help us to go from strength to strength for many years to come.
