6pm to 7.30pm Drinks Reception – Hosted by alumnus Mr Franklin Heng (1985)
L16, Hong Kong Park, Supreme Court Road, Admiralty Hong Kong

7.45pm Dinner – Hosted by Alumnus Mr Kevin Chan (1986)

Girton alumni are warmly invited to join the Mistress, Professor Susan J. Smith, the new Development Director, Ms Deborah Easlick, at a drinks reception at L16 kindly hosted by Mr Franklin Heng followed by a dinner hosted by Mr Kevin Chan at Ronin Japanese Cuisine.

Both events are great opportunities to meet other Girtonians and to hear the latest news from the College; from our broadening academic agenda, to our thriving graduate community, and our success with widening participation and all round personal development.

We would be delighted if you were able to come to both events, but if you are only able to come to one that is absolutely fine. The two venues are only a short walk from one another.

There is no charge for the drinks reception - just a venue for all to meet and have a casual chat.

For the dinner, we would be grateful for a suggested donation of $800(HKD) per person, which will go towards Girton College’s ‘A Great Campaign’. Cheques made payable to ‘The Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong’ will be accepted on the night.

RSVP by contacting my colleague Ingrid on alumni@girton.cam.ac.uk or +44 (0)1223 764935.
