The historic rooms of Speaker’s House were the grand setting for Afasic’s Summer Reception in July. Afasic Vice-President and Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow MP kindly hosted a fabulous event. Old friends and new gathered to listen to John, Andrea Wershof and Abby Beverley speak about their personal experiences of speech, language and communication and their hopes for the future.
Another Afasic Vice-president, Bob Hoskins (pictured below with the Afasic youth project), closed the remarks by reminding the 150 guests of the impact of Afasic’s work influencing service provision and our unique and direct impact on thousands of families in the UK.
Members of the Afasic’s youth project, based in Redbridge, welcomed guests and spoke about their activities. Their stand drew a large crowd and a lot of interest amongst the MPs, professionals, parents, supporters and funders of Afasic.
