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 £2,000 in 2017, to the University of Glasgow in support of the James McCune Smith Learning Hub, as part of the Gilmorehill Campus redevelopment. In November 2013 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 2020 we made a gift of £200 to the University of Glasgow Covid Response Fund, which helps students especially those with no family support, those with caring responsibilities or with no way of returning home during the pandemic. The fund also helps to speed up front line research, helping to understand the virus and how it spreads.
