Founding the Fund

The Fund was launched at Eve Brook’s memorial meeting on 15 April 1998. The many speakers and readers included Trust patrons Simon Callow and Baroness Helena Kennedy QC.

Helena Kennedy gave the keynote address at the event, which we have reproduce in the link below. The address effectively reflects what Eve believed in, and everything which her Scholarship Fund stands for.

“Young people so often have swallowed the idea that ‘I’m not sure I can do this’. And the thing about getting the scholarship, is that it’s a vote of confidence. It’s saying to the young people, we believe in you”.

Helena Kennedy QC, 2008
