      Message
      of thanks
      I wish to welcome you to this year’s edition of Donor News,
      which provides me with an opportunity to thank you for
      your generous support of the University of Sheffield over
      the last 12 months. The visit by Her Majesty The Queen and
      His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh in November was
      a fantastic occasion for us all, and one of the highlights of
      the day was when The Queen opened the Sheffield Institute
      for Translational Neuroscience (see page 6) in the presence
      of so many of the project’s supporters and donors. Their
      dedication and enthusiasm has been inspiring, resulting
      in the creation of a world-class centre for research into
      degenerative diseases.

      The Royal visit coincided with a great period of change
      in higher education. We are actively considering how our
      ambitions for our students can be achieved in this new world
      of economic austerity. However we remain committed to the
      core values on which the University of Sheffield was founded
      in 1905. I refer to the fact that our University was, in part,
      founded by penny donations made by working people in the
      city. These people made these donations from their very
      limited resources, not because giving was easy but because
      what they aspired to was so very important.

      The culture of our University is one of blending the highest
      standards and ideals with personal warmth and pragmatism.
      Like our home city, we pride ourselves on being accessible
      and down to earth while creating quality. My greatest wish
      is for us to continue to inspire future generations of young
      people to come to Sheffield and develop into the people that
      they can be. As valued members of our community, your
      continued support for the University of Sheffield undoubtedly
      allows us to achieve this ambition.

      Professor Keith Burnett CBE, FRS

The ties that bind
Miles Stevenson, Director of Development,
comments on the strong links between the
city and the University of Sheffield, and our
10,000th donation.
This high Victorian illuminated manuscript from 1879 highlights
the gratitude of the then Borough of Sheffield to Mark Firth,
the benefactor of Firth College, one of the three constituent
parts of what would become the University of Sheffield in 1905.
The text thanks Alderman Firth for his interest in the “moral
and intellectual welfare of his fellow-townsmen by having at
his sole expense erected a noble building known by the name
of Firth College… for the purposes of higher education”. This
wonderful document has been presented to the University
by Mark Firth’s great-great-grandson, the sculptor Mark Firth
(Hon LittD 2006), and is on display outside Firth Hall.

Today, the principles stated in this letter live on within the
University and the city of Sheffield (city status was achieved
in 1893). I constantly experience examples of staff, students
and alumni working hard to make Sheffield a better place. The
Victorian citizens of Sheffield would be amazed at the work
undertaken by the University over more than a century that
has transformed it into one of the leading seats of learning in
the country. The Times Higher ranks Sheffield as one of 12 UK
universities in the top 100 universities in the world. Our staff
and students are curing diseases, developing new forms of
technology and caring for the community, amongst many other
significant achievements.

Her Majesty The Queen visited the University last November
to open the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience,
and the fantastic work taking place at this world-leading centre

In 2010, over 1,400 students actively volunteered in the local

University’s commitment to the city is as strong now as it was
at its foundation in 1905.

tradition that continues to flourish. I am pleased to report that

The royal seal
of approval


The University was proud to welcome Her Majesty The Queen and
His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh to open the Sheffield
Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) on 18 November
2010. Among the excited guests at the event were supporters of
the Sheffield Institute Foundation for Motor Neurone Disease
(SIFMND), whose remarkable fundraising campaign resulted in
the donation worth £10 million for the establishment of the centre.
As we reported in the 2010 issue of Donor News, SITraN represents a massive
leap forward in understanding motor neurone disease (MND), which has been a
neglected condition in terms of research funding. There are 40,000 patients who
suffer from MND in Europe, including 6,000 in the UK alone. To date no single
institution anywhere in the world has developed the necessary critical mass and
facilities to focus on this devastating illness and other degenerative conditions such
as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and spinal muscular atrophy. SITraN
now offers the opportunity for a coordinated approach to the development and
clinical trialling of new therapies based on rational targets of proven pre-clinical
effectiveness.

Members of the research team – which numbers almost 100 people – have
multidisciplinary skills in neurology, pathology, gene therapy, molecular genetics,
protein chemistry, cell biology, pharmacology, bioinformatics and computer
science. They will exploit the potential of modern neuroscience, the ‘post-genome’
era and exciting developments in biomedical therapeutics. This work complements
the University’s existing partnerships of academic research groups, government
and charitable research funding bodies, the pharmaceutical industry and the
healthcare sector.

“We are truly privileged that Her Majesty officially opened SITraN,” said Professor
Pamela Shaw, Director of SITraN. “The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh met
our research staff, the patrons of SIFMND and some patients with MND and
family members. They were most interested to hear of some of the fundraising
adventures including the trek to the South Pole by Doug Oppenheim and Jeremy
Rogers, and the Bounty Boat expedition led by Don McIntyre which re-enacted

very generous donations. Shaun’s father
Stuart attended the opening of the Institute
by The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh
and continues his son’s work by being an
enthusiastic patron himself.

A series of plaques across the campus details
the biographies of our benefactors past and
present. They number 20 to date; further
plaques will be installed as we continue to
recognise our supporters’ generosity. There
are four sited in SITraN: in addition to Shaun’s
they acknowledge the support of Jonathan
Stone whose father, Hyman Stone, was
the first directly elected President of the
Students’ Union; Irene and Richard Beard;
and the Greenwood family in memory of John
Greenwood.

Women’s Lacrosse Club
Over 250 new members signed up to the Sheffield University Lacrosse Club in
2011 – the sport is one of the fastest growing in the UK. The club has thriving
men’s, women’s and mixed teams. Lacrosse equipment is expensive and the
women’s team had been reliant on their goalkeeper having her own kit. They were
also using second-hand kit from the men’s team for their coaching sessions. On
their goalie’s graduation last year, the team was in the position of not having the
necessary safety equipment to allow them to reach their full potential in the British
Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) league.

The team approached the Alumni Foundation for funds to buy a new set of kit. They
received a grant of £564: “By having this new goalie kit the Women’s Lacrosse Team
has gone from strength to strength. We have found ourselves a regular goalkeeper
and are in the process of training a complete beginner in the same position. Last
season we won the BUCS Northern Lacrosse League 2A, and we were runners up
in the cup competition for our division. There is no doubt that the kit has given
increased confidence to our goalkeepers. We know the Alumni Foundation’s
generous gift will continue to help us enormously in the future.”                                                                     Sheffield University Samba Society members.

University of Sheffield High Peak Club
The High Peak Club focuses on climbing, walking and biking and is one of the largest
outdoor clubs in the country with over 350 members. The club runs annual trips and
courses to Scotland to go winter mountaineering. The aim is to give people the skills
and experience they need to be safe in the mountains at an affordable price. The
club provides specialist equipment including ice axes and crampons; however, their
current stock needed to be replaced due to general wear and tear. An application
to the Alumni Foundation for £1,500 was approved and they were able to purchase
new kit, including new maps and compasses – which were also used by more
experienced members when they encountered a ‘white out’ in the Cairngorms. The
club’s Matthew Sharpe said, “The new winter kit certainly got a proper work out in
its first season, being used both on the weekends away and by members of the club
having their own adventures and it is certainly getting a little less shiny. Thank you
for a grant which has, and will, be well used.”

                                               The most important criteria for the projects are
                                               that they benefit as many students as possible,
                                               and that they promote and enhance excellence

The John Carr Design Centre                                                                John and Hilda Carr


In memory of John Carr
In 1994, a substantial donation of £500,000 was made to the
University by Hilda Carr in memory of her husband John, a successful
local businessman, who founded the John Carr joinery business.
Mrs Carr, who died in 2000, was a director of the company for
many years. Part of the money was used to refurbish the old Applied
Science Library in the Sir Frederick Mappin Building, now renamed
the John Carr Library. In addition, the investment income has funded
a number of projects including memorial lectures, sponsorship of a
named lectureship, summer schools, several bursaries and provision
of disabled access to the Mappin Building.

In 2008, it was agreed that the accumulated balance of the fund
should be used to create the John Carr Design Centre, providing
a suite of teaching rooms with top-class equipment. Now
completed, this facility will be of continuing benefit to the Faculty of
Engineering and a lasting memorial to John and Hilda Carr who were
instrumental in its creation.

                                                       Not only used by University staff and students, the buildings are also regularly visited

                                                  The Dr Ian Noble Memorial Fund
                                                  Dr Ian Noble graduated in Medicine from the University in 2009, and died tragically in a road accident
                                                  in October 2010. In celebration of his life, his family and partner have established the Dr Ian Noble
                                                  Memorial Fund, which has already raised over £77,000 and provides support for medical students
                                                  who are unable to find the funding to undertake an intercalated degree at the University of Sheffield
                                                  (this includes an optional additional year during which students undertake medical research, leading
                                                  to the award of a BMedSci degree in addition to the MB ChB degree).

                                                  Ian’s friends and family are actively raising funds: Dr Marcus Gleave (MB ChB 2007) is planning to
                                                  take part in a mountain marathon in the Lake District in July (www.justgiving.com/Marcus-Gleave);
                                                  Ian’s partner Dr Annabel Scott (MB ChB 2007) is doing a run in the summer with a group of Sheffield-
                                                  trained doctors; and two of Ian’s friends, Jacqueline and Sally Murray, ran the Paris Marathon in April.
                                                  Professor Nigel Bax, Head of the Academic Unit of Medical Education, said, “Donations to the Dr Ian
                                                  Noble Memorial Fund will help other students who, as well as having high academic ability, share
                                                  the commitment and determination that was so much part of Ian’s persona. The fund, and those it
                                                  supports, will provide a lasting tribute to a much-missed young man who made such a tremendous
                                                  contribution to medicine during his life.”

Widening horizons
Generous donations from alumni have increased the opportunities                                The students in Prague, with Melissa Cotsford on the left of the front row.

available to today’s students to experience the benefits of travelling
abroad as part of their coursework.
The Department of Geography has set up three bursary schemes, all funded by alumni
following an appeal during the department’s centenary celebrations in 2008: the
Geography Postgraduate Fieldwork and Hardship Bursary, the Geography Undergraduate
Field Class Bursary, and the Masters-level University Bursary. The fantastic response of
the department’s alumni means that these bursaries are being awarded over three years.

A centenary fieldwork bursary helped Margi Bryant meet the cost of carrying out
fieldwork in Kenya for her dissertation for her MA in Social and Cultural Geographies.
Her research explored the relationship between international volunteering and nature
conservation in a post-colonial context. She undertook a case study of a small wildlife
organisation which hosts fee-paying volunteers, spending a month examining the
perceptions, priorities and aspirations of international volunteers and local participants:
“Living and working as a volunteer in Kenya was a crucial part of the research, allowing
me to observe processes and relationships at close hand.” She hopes her research will
cast useful light on the rapidly growing phenomenon of international volunteering and its
potential impact on conservation agendas.
                                                                                               Margi Bryant (seated, front left) with fellow volunteers in Kenya.
In 2009, the Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies received a grant of £3,000
from an anonymous graduate donor to support student travel to central and eastern
Europe. Part of the fund was allocated to an undergraduate trip to the Czech Republic
last year. The students were given short tasks to complete independently in Prague
where they visited cultural attractions, took photos and gathered information, as well as
touring important sights including the famous castle Karlstejn on the outskirts of the city.
Professor Neil Bermel commented, “It was impressive to see a group of mostly first-year
novices to the language activate their ‘book knowledge’ and cope with a range of daily
situations. It clearly boosted their motivation and self-esteem.” One of the students,
Melissa Cotsford, added, “It was great to put what we’ve learnt into practice. There was
a great atmosphere in the group and I have no doubt I will return, hopefully even more
confident to speak in Czech.”
