Lottery £1m bequest

The school of medicine has received a 1m donation from a trust set up by the late lottery winner Cheridan Raithby.

Cheridan won the jackpot in 1996, and having suffered from ill-health all her life, was keen to use her new found wealth to support medical activities and developments. She died in January 2001, aged 53, leaving all her estate to the charitable trust she set up in her name.

Receiving the donation, Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Alan Wilson said: "This money will make a significant contribution towards important developments in the school of medicine, and in recognition of Cheridan Raithby's enormous generosity, we are looking at how we can best commemorate her."
