A few weeks back I photographed an assignment for the children’s charity Brainwave. The occasion was one of their major fund raising events, ‘A Question of Sport’ Gala Dinner held at the May Fair hotel in London.
This was an exceptional event, extremely well organised and very well attended by sponsors, supporters, friends and families. The evening consisted of a red carpet welcome, a drinks reception a sumptuous three course meal (which I’m pleased to say I got to enjoy as well). Interspersed with a raffle an auction and a number of interactive table games.
The main attraction of course though was the ‘Question of Sport’ contest which featured a number of sporting celebrities, former England Rugby Union player and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant, Austin Healey, former England cricket player and co host of the radio show ‘Talk Sport’, Ronnie Irani, Hull City footballer George Boateng and former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder John Pratt.
The evening was full on entertainment and fun. It was enjoyed by everyone who went and raised thousands of pounds to support a first class children’s charity, Brainwave.
Brainwave offers home based therapy to children aged from 6 months -12 years of age who have Development Delay and disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome and Autism. After a two-day Initial Assessment the therapists devise a structured exercise therapy Programme to suit the individual needs of each child. They then show the parents how to do this therapy at home. They also offer advice and support to families in any way they can.
