Elfrida Rathbone 100th anniversary

In 1916, Elfrida Rathbone set up a school in King's Cross for children with learning disabilities who at that time were seen as 'ineducable'. Kentish Town charity Elfrida Rathbone Camden is still carrying out her vision of enabling young disabled people to realise their potential. We have a range of activities planned to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the start of her work.

Our events will include a fundraising 'Curry, music and comedy' night at the Bengal Lancer, Kentish Town Road, on Wednesday 3 August. Email for ticket details.

The charity will also be part of a centenary reception at the House of Lords in November. In order to make sure it goes ahead it needs more support from local businesses. Alexis Keir, ERC Director would love to talk to any Camden companies who can help our fundraising efforts and he can be contacted on 07917 193 697 or .
