I was pleased to address an audience in the Great Hall on ‘Philanthropy at the University of Birmingham’.
I introduced myself by explaining that I had studied Law (Year of 74) at the University and since qualification had enjoyed my career as a solicitor.
I am of the generation that was so fortunate to have both my secondary and university education free. I am thus pleased to offer all support possible to the University’s Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO). This takes the form of assisting with applications to Grant Making Trusts; support of the legacy initiative; and assisting with raising the profile of projects, for example the ‘Access to Birmingham’ scheme, the development of Bramall and refurbishing of the Lapworth Museum.
