10th February 2020

We are very pleased to share the news of our latest £2m capital grant to Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS), a collaboration between the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University.

Due to open in July 2020, the Pears Building will provide medical students with an inspirational learning and study environment containing a 150-seat lecture theatre, seminar rooms, IT suites, social spaces and a GP simulation suite – the first in the UK.

Our Executive Chair, Sir Trevor Pears said: ‘My brothers and I are delighted to support the new Kent and Medway Medical School. Our family foundation has a long-standing relationship with the University of Kent and we are confident this new collaboration will make a significant contribution to health provision regionally and nationally.’
