More than 180 alumni, local charities and members of the public have attended the Fred Freeman lecture on Philanthropy with Professor Sir David Cannadine.
Professor Cannadine delivered a lecture about the role of private giving in the original establishment of the University of Liverpool, as well as the recent, current and future challenges – and opportunities – facing Liverpool and other British universities.
Professor Cannadine discussed how Fred Freeman became an influential philanthropist, and how Merseyside benefitted as a result.
He said: “It is entirely right and proper that Fred Freeman’s generous and imaginative giving should be applauded and that his memory should be cherished. It’s a particular pleasure to know that some of his descendants attended this event, and I am deeply honoured to have this chance to salute his memory.”

The Fred Freeman Annual Lecture on Philanthropy was established in memory of the late Fred Freeman (HonLitt.D 2007) who died in 2007. It was established by a gift from his family through his charitable foundation after his death. The previous speakers were Cherie Booth QC and Paul Barry-Walsh.
