The Treloar Talks 2016
When: 7th March 2016Back to events index
Join us for an enthralling evening of entertainment and inspiration. Five speakers each with 15 minutes on their story.
Sir David Brewer CMG CVO JP
Sir David Brewer was the Lord Mayor of the City of London in 2005 and 2006. A patron and long-time supporter of Treloar’s, during his mayoral year he chose Treloar’s as the sole beneficiary of all charitable donations and support. His generosity enabled Treloar’s to regenerate the campus building a much needed hall of residence, Brewer House. Join us tonight to discover more about 'Dressing up in London! - The Mayoralty and The Lieutenancy'.
Chris Moon MBE
A former British Army Officer, Chris survived being taken prisoner in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge guerrillas - one of the most brutal terror groups in history- and negotiated his release and that of two colleagues from threatened execution. He was then blown up in a supposedly safe area of a minefield in remote East Africa losing an arm and a leg. But within a year of leaving hospital ran the London Marathon and now runs the world's toughest ultra-marathons alongside raising money for charities assisting the disabled and defying all expectations for his own future.
Lieutenant-General Sir Hew Pike KCB DSO MBE
A retired British Army officer, Hew is best known for his service in the Falklands War and for his command in Northern Ireland. He entered Sandhurst at 17 and later joined the Parachute Regiment. As a platoon commander with the Third Battalion, he served in Bahrain and saw fighting in Aden and among rebel tribesmen in Yemen. He was in Northern Ireland throughout much of the Seventies and, as Lieutenant Colonel, he had become Commanding Officer of 3 Para by the time Argentina invaded the Falklands in 1982.
Alastair Stewart OBE
Alastair has been a newscaster with the ITN network for many years, which has included him presenting News at Ten, London Tonight, Police Camera Action and News at One. He has also co-anchored General Election coverage and many special programmes including State Visits and Royal Weddings. He is a patron and a wonderful advocate for Treloar’s.
Born deaf and with cerebral palsy, Ben was not expected to live let alone walk. He came to Treloar’s having struggled in mainstream education where the support he needed was simply not available. Treloar’s allowed Ben to thrive and, coupled with his unique spirit and determination, ultimately to succeed winning a silver medal in the 200m at the Bejing Paralympics and a bronze in London in 2012.
