Upcoming reunions

John Fry Reunion Lunch 2019 

Date: 25th November 2019, 12.00-17.00.

Venue: The Robens Suite, 29th Floor Guy's Tower, Guy's Campus, London SE1 1UL. 

RSVP: Please book online here. Alternatively you can book over the phone by calling the Alumni Office on 020 7848 3053.

This annual event, held in celebration and memory of eminent GP John Fry, is open to all alumni who graduated from Guy’s between the years of 1930 and 1988. It is a wonderful opportunity to return to Guy’s Campus and reunite with classmates and friends.

 

The afternoon will begin at 12.00 in the Robens Suite on floor 28 of the Guy’s Tower, with a drinks reception. We will then hear from this year’s recipients of the John Fry at Guy's Scholarship and this year’s recipient of the Maxine Hallworth GKT Rugby Scholarship, before enjoying a three-course lunch with wine.

 

Professor Stephen Challacombe PhD FDSRCS FRCPath FMedSci DSc FKC (Dentistry, 1968), will give a talk on the Guy’s Medical Students who went to assist at Belsen in 1945. This talk has been inspired and co-researched by Stanley Davis, our nonagenarian committee member.

 

Afterwards, I invite you to join us in the Gordon Museum for refreshments and a talk from the museum’s curator, Mr Bill Edwards. The proceedings should end by 17.00, giving those who live in the Greater London area or beyond ample time to get home.

 

As a result of our move to the Robens Suite we have had to increase the cost of the lunch to £70. 

 

Please could you forward this invitation to any other Guy’s Alumni who you think may be interested in attending the John Fry lunch.

 

I look forward to seeing you at the reunion.

 

Kind regards, 

Dr Tina Challacombe, Chair of the John Fry at Guy's Alumni Group

Programme as follows:

  • 12.00 – 14.00: Workshop with 1969 alumni and current students followed by a group photo. Gordon Museum, Guys Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’s Trust, Hodgkin Building, King’s College London.

  • *Please note that you are welcome to attend any aspect of the event above at your discretion. Feel free to attend just one of the above or both*

RSVP: Jane Johnston: johnston1949@btinternet.com  

This is the 50th Anniversary of our going up to Guy's in September 1969. Our Oxbridge friends joined us a little bit later.
This reunion plan started with Richard Fitton and a few of us, looking at a possible joint meeting with medical students, in October/November this year, looking at the past and future of doctors, that he can tell you about if you are interested. Please see the attached flyer and email richardpeterfitton7@gmail.com for more information on the first part of our reunion on 26th September.

A more social meeting was mentioned and Bruce McLeod, Dave Young, Ama Rohatiner, Jane Johnston, Richard Fitton, myself and others of us have planned it as a very simple, based at The George. Come when you can, before or after an exhibition or show or stay all day with a gentle stroll to the river or up the Shard and back some time, if you wish.

Sadly it comes too late for some such as Ian Forgacs, who died last year so don't miss it, we're not organising another - probably!

Please let us know if you are coming and, if you like, send a brief self-history with or without contact details for others, so we can put them on a private website or on a board at the George, as you wish.
Hope to see you soon.

Best wishes,
Marc Rowland

King's Nursing reunion - 25th Anniversary

Date: TBC, in 2019

Venue: TBC

RSVP: email Rozanne Xavier:  rozxavier@gmail.com

Hello Fellow Grads!
I would really like to do something fun to celebrate our 25 years as graduates of KCL - Nursing.  I know we are spread out all over the world - USA, England, Australia, to name a few countries.  I am writing this early as I know the difficulties of getting as many of us together and probably in an area which will be easy to get to by all.  I was thinking may be Sri Lanka - I can organize a tour of the country as well.  Please let me know if anyone's interested.
