Claire Tyler, Head of Dance at Reddam House in Berkshire, is hosting a Charity Fundraising Event to support Epilepsy and GRACE.
Claire has been diagnosed as Epileptic for 26 years and as a teacher wanted to raise awareness of this condition amongst pupils and colleagues as it had not been touched on previously. She also wishes to support GRACE as her friend Pandy Dean, herself a dance and fitness instructor, has recently been diagnosed with Ovarian cancer and this is a charity close to her heart. Mr Jay Chatterjee, a Consultant Gynaecological Cancer Surgeon will represent GRACE on the night and talk about the Charity’s work.
You will be treated to a delightful evening of Music, Drama and Dance and Gymnastics. The Gala will show-case both students and staff and will also feature an auction. The proceeds of the evening will be split between the two charities. Tickets are £30 for Adults or £10 for students/concessions. Cash in a labelled envelope can be handed to Reddam House reception, or please contact Claire on email@example.com for alternative methods of payment.
In order to help raise money for GRACE, former dance teacher and GRACE woman Pandy Dean will be hosting an evening of glitz, glamour and ballroom dancing as our very own Wellington College staff members take to the dance floor for a Strictly Come Dancing extravaganza!
There will be VIP guest-judges and Murray Lindo (Head of the Wellington Community) will be leading us through the evening as MC. There will be fizz on arrival, followed by a sit-down 2 course meal. The dancing competition will take place after the meal, and once the winning couple have been announced, all are invited to dance the night away with our 13-piece band! There will be a cash bar on site. GRACE founder, Simon Butler-Manuel, will be taking part in this fun filled evening!
Tickets cost £100 per person, or why not buy a table of 10 for £1,000. All profits go to GRACE. Tickets include glass of fizz, 2-course meal, half a bottle of wine and of course live entertainment!

Thank you for your interest in BIARGS and we hope that you will be able to join us at The University of Surrey, Guildford for this international educational meeting in gynaecological robotic surgery. Guildford is a renowned centre of excellence for minimally invasive surgery and training, and is now the recognised Epicentre for training in robotic Gynae surgery in the UK.
The Gynae-oncology department in Guildford was the first in the UK to adopt robotic surgery into mainstream NHS practice and all four Consultants are robotically trained. The Guildford team have performed over a thousand cases predominantly for gynaecological cancer, and have trained a number of surgeons from home and abroad in these necessary skills pertinent to the modern gynaecological surgeon.
The two key themes to this two-day meeting are: firstly clinical training of surgeons, theatre nurses and first assistants with da Vinci robotics, and secondly embedding robotic surgery into mainstream clinical practice, including MDT working among pelvic surgeons, updates on NHS commissioning and private medical insurance issues, and insights into new and future platforms from all robotics manufacturers.
The BIARGS faculty are supported by two of the world’s most experienced trainers in robotic surgery in from the USA: Prof Arnold Advincula, from Columbia University, New York, past President of the AAGL, and many would say father of robotic gynaecologic surgery; and from Europe, Professor René Verheijen, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist from UMC Utrecht, the current President of the European Society SERGS, and who has lead their Training Committee since its inception.
Whether you are an experienced robotic surgeon, a novice, an O&G trainee, first assistant, or hospital manager evaluating the possible benefits of investing in this technology, we hope you will join us for what is sure to be an excellent and enjoyable educational meeting.
Mr Simon Butler-Manuel, MD, FRCS, FRCOG
