Baroness Lynda Chalker, Trustee of the UCT Trust, kindly hosted an alumni reception at the House of Lords to launch UCT’s new major fundraising campaign, Distinguishing UCT.

UK Trustee, Richard Gnodde, announced the wonderful news that R91m had already been raised in the UK during the silent campaign.
