Funding the next generation of veterinary researchers

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, Patron of the Langford Trust for Animal Health and Welfare, kindly hosted a lunch at Clarence House on Wednesday 30th March 2022 to celebrate the work of the charity. This special event showcased the clinical research achievements and future aspirations of the Langford Trust.

Guests were given a fascinating insight into four pioneering veterinary research projects funded by the Trust at the University of Bristol Veterinary School. The Duchess spent time meeting with veterinary researchers, representatives of grant making trusts and long-standing donors to talk about their involvement with the charity and its work

Sir David Wills Bt, Chairman of the Langford Trust, thanked the Duchess for her gracious hospitality and reflected on her longstanding relationship with the Trust.  “We are immensely grateful to Her Royal Highness. Having served as our Patron for over fifteen years, we are both honoured and privileged that she has recently agreed to continue in the role. Our hope is to build on the incredible work demonstrated here today, securing donations for our next generation of researchers, and together furthering veterinary science.”

As well as introducing new funders to the Trust, the event also gave the Trustees of the Langford Trust an opportunity to personally thank Ambassadors of the Trust and major donors for their continued support. Undoubtedly, it is the commitment of generous supporters which enables the Langford Trust to improve animal health and welfare today and for the future. After struggling with two years of Covid disruptions, Clarence House proved the perfect place to finally meet.
