Ladies Who Lunch, with Jono Coleman and Jonathon Ross OBE
Friday 12th May 2006
The Lowe Syndrome Trust continued its campaign to raise awareness of Lowe Syndrome and raise funding to support research by holding a 6th year Ladies who Lunch anniversary event at Toast restaurant in Hampstead. Jonathan Ross (Trustee) and Jono Coleman (Patron) hosted the lunch and raffle bringing lots of hilarity to the day! Almost £5,000 was raised via a Silent Bid which included many excellent donated items including a Joss Stone's Skateboard, a signed framed photo donated by George Michael and a pair of Versace shoes signed (and worn?) by actress Elizabeth Hurley.
The funds raised at this event will enable the Trust to fund a new research project into Lowe in the hope of better treatments and eventually a cure of the disease. One small grant under consideration by the scientific advisory board is for £10,000 to continue a research project at Imperial College London into a chemical synthesis of the Lowe Enzyme, for which other fundraisng events are also being held including an R&B band "Sheerwater" gig at Spitz Wine Bar at Spitalfields market London on 7th June and London Riems france bike ride.
