James Lawrie Research Fund
This fund was established in 2007, following a bequest to the hospital from the estate of James Lawrie. James was born in December 1927, he remained a bachelor and became a very successful manager of the family property, "Kinross". He was a diminutive man, weighed approximately 35kg and although he had indifferent health he was very active and hard working. Jim was a member of the Royal Agricultural Society and attended the Sydney Show regularly. His main enjoyment was derived from lawn bowls. Jim was a member of Gresford Bowling Club, where he held various executive positions. James was also a religious man and supported his church with a provision of a legacy in his Will, as well as making considerable donations to other causes including medical research. This fund was established in his memory and is used to support oncology research into head and neck cancer.
