Noon Trustees special guests at Cambridge University gathering

Two of our Trustees were welcomed as special guests at the recent welcome gathering for
all international scholars at Cambridge University, held at the Twelvetrees Hotel, hosted
by the new vice-chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope. Dr Paul Flather, the Chair of the Vicky Noon trust and Professor Haroon Ahmed, were two special guests praised in the opening speeches for the contribution the trust made as one of the many partner bodies that works with the hugely successful Cambridge Commonwealth Trust (CCT). The VNEF is poised to renew its 25-year partnership with Cambridge in the coming months to continue to support able and successful graduates coming from Pakistan to study at the leading university.
