The OA Club was delighted to receive this photograph from the British Embassy in Washington, DC of Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch KCMG (OA 1972). The Ambassador was presented with an OA tie by Emily Oliver, Senior Education Research Manager at the British Red Cross.

Sir Kim was kindly hosting a dinner for volunteer delegates from the Red Cross, who were meeting in Washington to contribute their professional and academic health expertise to the scientific evidence base for Red Cross programmes and products.

Emily, a St Helen and St Katharine alumna and sister of Tam Richmond (OA 1990), said afterwards that ‘Abingdon School can be proud of the Ambassador who spoke fondly of his time there, and also demonstrated strong regard for the humanitarian purposes of the Red Cross Movement.’
