On 12th June 2015 Nicholas Ridley and Rev Dr Robert Beaken were invited to Lambeth Palace as part of the Egyptian Diocesan Association, where Holy Communion was celebrated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, with Archbishop Sentamu and Bishop Mouneer Anis in attendance.

The venue provided an opportunty for Nicholas Ridley and Robert Beaken to discuss with Bishop Mouneer Anis the opportunties for the Ridley Eye Foundation to continue its training of Harpur Memorial Hospital opthalmologist, Dr Ireny Wesley, in cataract surgery with the possibilities of sending her on a further advanced surgical training course following her course at the Royal Society of Opthalmologists in London.

The venue also provided an opportunity for Messrs Ridley and Beaken to discuss the work of the Foundation with Archbishop Sentamu.
