Thanks so much to Lord and Lady Leitch who hosted our event at the iconic River Room on Thursday evening.  We were honoured to have Lord Leitch, Professor Lesley Regan and Professor James Logan all give impassioned speeches on the role film can play in delivering health training in low and middle income countries. A great start to our appeal. Sincere thanks to all who attended.
