University of Aberdeen Development Trust's third annual celebration of philanthropy welcomes guests on campus
The University of Aberdeen Development Trust's third annual celebration of philanthropy, which this year took the form of an afternoon tea party, was held in the Linklater Rooms on Sunday 29th May. The event was a huge success and was attended by approaching 100 donors as well as students and staff.
Held in conjunction with the May Festival, the reception gave donors the opportunity to meet students who have benefitted from funding as well as a number of researchers who are undertaking globally-important work thanks to the generosity of benefactors.
Principal, Professor Sir Ian Diamond, welcomed guests and introduced speakers Jasper Ip from Hong Kong who is studying MSc Environmental Partnership Management and Professor Alison Murray who leads Aberdeen children of the 1950s dementia research.
Donors were able to interact with students and staff at a number of exhibition stands ranging from the student TAU Racing team and Level-Up Conference team to researchers from our mathematics and chemistry departments. Attendees also enjoyed musical performances from a student jazz duo and accordionist Euan Reid who receives an Ogston Scholarship.
Fundraising income for the University of Aberdeen is channelled through the Development Trust which is an independent charity. The Trust raises essential funds to support much of the University's activities such as vital medical research as well as supporting students through the provision of scholarships, bursaries and facilities.
