About the event

The Friends' Diamond Jubilee Birthday Tea will be held in the Institute at 5 pm on Saturday 29th April 2006.

The Friends of the Scott Polar Research Institute was founded on 27th April 1946. To mark the anniversary, and as a 'thank you' to our supporters, this celebratory tea party is being held for all members of the Friends and Institute staff.

As part of this special occasion, the Friends will also formally present the Institute with the £50,000 endowment cheque raised by members, to create the William Mills Library Acquisitions Fund, in memory of William Mills, prominent Friend and late Librarian of the Institute.

Please indicate your intended attendance by contacting the Friends Secretary, so that we will have a reasonably accurate indication of numbers for the caterers. Members are welcome to bring guests for a small charge (£7.50 per person).

The Tea Party will be followed by the Diamond Jubilee Fund raising event: An Evening with Kari Herbert.
