Zoe Newson, British Powerlifter and Bronze Medallist in the 2012 Paralympics will be speaking at the next QualitySquare networking breakfast held in Colchester on January 30th.

Zoe who is based locally in East Bergholt, is the patron of Disabililty4Sport and will be speaking alongside founders Jordan Smith and Abigail Saxon. Disability4Sport is a not for profit, Community Interest Company based in Colchester that works closely with schools, colleges and community groups. It provides a wide range of sporting opportunities and activities that engage people from the disabled community, with the aim of positively improving physical health and mental well being for all ages.

Born with growth hormone deficiency, Zoe qualified for the Paralympics ranking 5th in the top World Rankings list. In 2012 she posted a European record at the IPC Powerlifting British Championships and at just 20 years of age went on to equal her personal best and secure a bronze medal in the under 40 kg class for Great Britain at the London 2012 Paralympics.

Penny Hepburn from QualitySolicitors FJG and organiser of QualitySquare events said, “To have secured such inspirational speakers for the first QualitySquare event of 2013 is fantastic. Having a local Paralympic medallist speaking at the breakfast will certainly make it an event not to be missed.”.

QualitySquare breakfasts are held monthly in both Colchester and Tendring and are a joint venture between QualitySolicitors FJG and Green Square Communications.
