Thank you for your donations

Dear friends,

In 2008 we set a target of raising £50 million to invest in research and teaching by the end of our 50th anniversary year. Last month we revealed that we outstripped that target and 12,000 donors like you have come together to give £73 million since the Campaign began.

That's an amazing collective effort which has gone into tackling real-world problems from battling cancer to improving education in Africa. Your support is changing lives every day, and I hope this latest e-newsletter and our brand new website show you how.

Thank you for your support.

With my best wishes

Katharine Beer - Communications Officer -
