Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

I'm looking to purchase a wireless keyboard and mouse for use in our camera club. The PC is situated towards the rear of the room and is in a fixed position; we would like to be able to operate a keyboard and mouse from the front of the room when we have visiting speakers or someone is giving a demonstration which means that whatever we buy has to be capable of operating at a range of 6 to 7 metres from the PC. Not really looking for one of these big "all singing all dancing" keyboards, just something fairly simple but reliable. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Is a wireless presenter like Kensington presenter what you really need? It allows a presenter to control a laptop for Powerpoint, etc.

We have a presenter which works very well for basic things like moving from one image/screen to another but what we need is something that will allow us to do full PhotoShop demonstrations from the front of the clubroom, so a full keyboard & mouse is really what we need.

Logitech state that their wireless or bluetooth keyboards will work up to 10m

Just a thought - what screen will the presenter be looking at for the mouse movements, etc? Personally I don't like working off a projector screen but prefer a laptop with cloned or extended display. Is it not possible to have a laptop at the front connected to a projector?
