The Jazzy Summer Soiree organised by the Friends of the HOPE, was a great success; friendly, relaxed with live jazz creating a wonderful atmosphere.

Thank you to those supporting the event and those that made donations, contributing to yet another scholarship for The HOPE Foundation. Thank you to Shane Foreman, who provided the wonderful setting of her house and garden for all to enjoy.

The Committee of Friends is passionate about organising interesting events to raise funds for student scholarships for research into ageing.

To be informed of the Friends’ events please ensure that you are on our mailing list. Just contact our Executive Officer, Dr Jill Waters. We only advertise through email to keep cost to an absolute minimum.
