1843 Society Lunch
Members of the 1843 Society were treated to some outstanding musical performances from Marlborough pupils at their recent gathering at College.
The Society is the College’s way of thanking OMs who have thought of Marlborough in their Will. The Master hosts a lunch and takes the opportunity to keep members up to date with her plans and vision for Marlborough. This year those gathered also enjoyed hearing a few words from Professor Sir Keith Porter, former major trauma clinical lead and surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, who was knighted for his work with injured soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Sir Keith was also a recipient of a John Dancy bursary back in the sixties.
Sir Christopher Clarke QC, a former British Judge of the Court of Appeal, also said a few words, thanking the Master for her hospitality on behalf of the guests. Many guests stayed on to watch the XI face Winchester, which was the only downside of the day as we lost!
