4th Sept 2016
Parallel London was the UK’s first fully inclusive mass participation sporting event. It was an opportunity for everybody, disabled or not, to come together at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in a national celebration of inclusion and diversity. here were five different push/run challenges for all ages and abilities. Participants could choose their distance – up to 10k – and set their own goal using any mobility aid of their choice, so it was a great opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone. Zubee had to go for the 10K!

Fashion with Passion show
22nd Oct 2010 Taste Restaurant at Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College
One of Zubee's most memorable events that she organised was the first groundbreaking fashion show, called Fashion with Passion, which featured disabled and non-disabled designers and models. It was the first time she put on an event of this kind.
Zubee wanted to do the show to raise awareness of disability in the fashion industry and to raise money for Action on Disability, a charity that she was working for at the time. Big-name brands who showcased their collections included Asos.com, Full Circle, La Mack London, Laura Fox, Clan Douglas Cashmere Studio, WheelieChix-Chic, John Smedley, Evans and Glam Sticks.
The show had support from celebrities who took to the catwalk, including disabled ex Eastenders actor, David Proud, who played Adam Best in EastEnders, disabled actress, Kelly Marie Stuart who played, Hayley Ramsay in Hollyoaks and Temisan, the brother of Oritise Williams from boy band, JLS.
The show was a huge success and raised over £2,000, receiving local, national and international press coverage with an article in British Vogue Magazine, something she was not expecting at all. Without the support of everyone involved, the show would not have been possible.
