The Bevan Foundation Annual Meeting

No Comments Current News

The Bevan Foundation held an evening of Culture, Community and Celebration to mark 10 years of the Bevan Foundation on Friday 21st October 2011 at Ebbw Vale. This was to celebrate 10 years of existence of the Bevan Foundation which has continued to contribute to many major political debates on issues affecting the people of Wales.

The gathering (shown in the picture) were treated to a stimulating lecture by the prominent local historian, Dai Davies on the topic of ‘The Dream of Aneurin Bevan’. The audience appreciated an insight into what Aneurin Bevan’s ethos had been even when creating the landmark National Health Service (NHS). Dai Davies argued that the provision of free health care was in Bevan’s view simply an element of allowing people to live a full life, and thus contribute to the growth of a happy and healthy society by freeing people from their health worries.

Prior to the celebrations, the Bevan Foundation held a well attended Annual General Meeting at which the Trustees presented a report on what the Foundation had done over the previous twelve months. A number of new Trustees were also elected to serve on the Foundation’s Governing Body.
