Summer BBQ boosts Norman's Fund

On the afternoon of Saturday 13 July 2019 RSC Belgium members and friends got together for a fundraising BBQ at our Section Chairman Bob Crichton's abode in Wavre with the aim to help boost our Norman Lloyd Scholarship fund

A good time was had by all with chef de cuisine Fabio in charge of the al fresco cooking and our hosts Bob and Bobbie providing a sumptuous multi-course spread.

Section secretary Tim Reynolds brought along some Timms Pimms and committee members contributed items for the raffle, which was drawn by Norman's wife Setsuko.

Prizes included vintage wines, beer, BBQ equipment and floral arrangements among many others.

All told EUR 795 was raised to support the continuation of our successful Norman Lloyd Scholarships at Cardiff University. The fund provides an annual scholarship of £1,000 for an undergraduate student, usually in their first year of study, at the Cardiff School of Chemistry.

So far, the fund has sponsored five students and has sufficient funds another award in the academic year 2019-2020.

Thanks to the generosity of the guests and contributors to the BBQ we are now well on the way to securing a seventh year for the Scholarships.

You can find out more about the Norman Lloyd Scholarship scheme on our dedicated blog page that also has links to brief profiles of the five recipients so far. If you would like to support the fund, please do not hesitate in contacting the section secretary.
