Help Us to Celebrate Our 5th Anniversary!

By News, Information and Advice

Join us at the home of the Royal Society for Medicine where we will celebrate the people who have helped us to achieve what we have so far, and share our ambitions for the future.


The Armitage Foundation will be celebrating its 5th birthday this year and to mark the occasion we will be holding a gala dinner at 1 Wimpole Street on Thursday 13th July.

Following a welcome reception in the magnificent Max Rayne Atrium, guests will enjoy a 3-course set menu which showcases locally sourced, seasonal produce, prepared to perfection.

Over after-dinner coffee and drinks, guests will hear from our founders, Dr Leanne Armitage and Daniel Huf about the importance of our work, and what inspires us to continue to strive for equity in the medical admissions process. We will also hear from some of the people that really count; young people who have taken part in our programmes. A programme participant or Armitage Ambassador will be seated at each table so that guests can learn more about what we do, and why.

This is a valuable opportunity to meet the people who make The Armitage Foundation the organisation it is, including some of our wonderful young Ambassadors, and to learn the role that we all have to play in building a more equitable future for people from all walks of life.
