Mr Fogg’s Residence Welcomes Former Professional Rugby Player and Recovering Quadriplegic, Ed Jackson
Kicking off a brand new year of the Explorer Series, Mr Fogg’s will welcome former professional rugby player and recovering quadriplegic, Ed Jackson, into his humble Mayfair home, Mr Foggs Residence on Monday 20th January 2020. Following a successful sporting career spanning 10 years, in 2017, Ed Jackson suffered a spinal cord injury which left him paralysed from the neck down and a medical prognosis that he would never walk again.
Through sheer determination and intense rehabilitation, Ed defied all odds and climbed Mount Snowdon just a year after his accident. For one night only, guests are invited to settle into Mr Foggs Residence and listen to Eds inspirational tale of how he has turned this setback into a serious comeback.
Ed Jackson’s career saw him play for Bath, Wasps, London Welsh and the Dragons, before a devastating spinal cord injury left him with a broken neck and shattered vertebrae. Despite being told his paralysis was almost certainly permanent, Ed defied opinion through rigorous rehabilitation and within a year of his accident, he was not only back walking, but climbing mountains. Nearly three years on, he has founded the charity Millimetres To Mountains and become a motivational speaker, inspiring others to channel their physical and mental energy into encouraging positive behaviours and achieving their goals no matter how impossible they may seem.
In the comfort of Phileas Mayfair abode, guests can sit back and relax whilst sipping on Tanqueray No. Ten cocktails including To the Ends of the Earth a mix of Tanqueray No. TEN Gin, Fermented Banana Shrub, Coffee Liqueur and Lime, Eastern Horizons made with Tanqueray No. TEN Gin, Belsazar Rosé Wine Aperitif, Sake and Pollen and Pole to Pole a blend of Tanqueray No. TEN Gin, Passion Fruit Juice, Toasted Rice Mirin, Vanilla and Fresh Lemon, whilst Ed discusses how to maximise potential in the most limiting situations and the importance of resilience in the face of adversity.
