Institute of Arts and Letters, London

Robert David Freese was presented with the Fellowship of the Institute of Arts and Letters (London) at the Reunion of the Central School of Religion held at St Jude’s Free Church of England, Balham, London, on 5 October. Our new Fellow is aged 81. He is a Reader in the Free Church of England and served as Warden at St Jude’s for many years. The award of the Fellowship recognizes his contribution to the Church and to charity. He was one of the early instigators of Wandsworth Oasis, which now operates a local network of charity shops that raises funds for people with HIV/AIDS, and has also volunteered with NACRO.
