RIBA President Angela Brady hosted a Summer Party on 28 June to raise funds for the RIBA Education Fund. The evening, which included a fundraising auction presented by Adrian Biddell from Sotheby's, raised over £16,000 for the RIBA Education Fund.
Speaking about the RIBA's education trust funds and supporting students, RIBA President Angela Brady said:
'The profession needs to step up to nurture and support those in financial need; we want a meritocratic future for architects where a diverse and highly skilled future generation can compete and shine on a global level. Now more than ever the RIBA's programme of education trust funds and awards needs support from those in the profession to achieve this goal.'
The RIBA would like to thank all our donors and supporters that helped to make the event a success:
