21/04/2005 HRH The Countess of Wessex opens the London Market

 

HRH The Countess of Wessex opened London's financial markets on Thursday 21st April  to mark the 1st anniversary of the Exchange’s partnership with Brainwave.

 

The Countess opened the markets by setting in motion 'The Source', the London Stock Exchange's dynamic sculpture positioned in the main atrium of its new building at Paternoster Square. The Countess of Wessex is President of Brainwave.


Brainwave is a partner charity of the London Stock Exchange until April 2006.  Every year in this country, 23,000 children become brain-injured or suffer from brain impairment, sometimes following an accident, sometimes as the result of a genetic condition, illness or birth trauma.  Brainwave is one of the UK's leading charities supporting children who suffer developmental delay as a result of such a condition.  Its work is achieving remarkable transformations in the physical and cognitive states of children across the UK through a tailored programme where rehabilitation exercises are taught to the child’s parents or carers.
