Local History Society talk – 12th September

In 2016 it will be 250 years since Addenbrooke’s Hospital opened its doors on Trumpington Street thanks to Dr John Addenbrooke who left £4,500 in his legacy ‘to hire and fit up, purchase or erect a small, physical hospital in the town of Cambridge for poor people.’ Originally housing just 20 beds, today’s hospital has over 1,000, an income of £719m and over 8,000 staff. Find out more with this fascinating talk on Sept 12th.
