50TH ANNIVERSARY: THE TRUST CELEBRATES ITS 50TH ANNIVERSARY
A speech on Wednesday 5 November 2014 by the Trust's Chairman, Mrs Elizabeth Charal, at a dinner for Trustees, medical advisors, and staff, to celebrate the Trust's 50th anniversary.
A man of exceptional talent, innovation and humanity, he created this charity in order to support important medical research and alleviate suffering. In the past half century the Trust has evolved into an all-encompassing humanitarian charity that has given over £90 million to medical research and a wide range of humanitarian charities.
This year, in celebration of Sir Jules, his vision and the 50 years of philanthropy he has provided, the Trust has committed £10 million to support two outstanding new research facilities which will bear his name at the University of Oxford and University College London & Moorfields Eye Hospital.
