Support for the University

We all thoroughly enjoy the excellent programme of events each year, and profit from the friendships/ networking generated through our meetings. Because this is our main aim, we set our subscription and event costs to ensure we at least cover our outgoings, though this can generate a small profit from time to time.

When this profit accumulates to a reasonable amount, we feel we can afford to make a donation to the University, as a small return for all we have gained due to our time there. Previous donations have included a donation of £2000 to the University Cardiovascular foundation in 2011. We also presented a cheque for £2000 to the University, to fund a scholarship for a talented student who might not otherwise be able to study at university, at an alumni function in Dulwich Picture Gallery in November 2013.

In 2017 we made a gift of £2,000 to the University of Glasgow in support of the James McCune Smith Learning Hub. The Hub is part of the University's redevelopment of the Gilmorehill Campus,  a significant moment in the University's history. This flagship development will be a creative environment, combining flexible study and social learning space with multi-styled and technology-enabled teaching.
