Ian and his late wife Rosemary supported Children’s Medical Research Institute since its inception in the early 60’s and felt fortunate to have known Sir Lorimer Dods – one of CMRI’s founders.
“My late wife and I decided to support CMRI and its endeavours when it was first being established by Sir Lorimer Dods, who we were privileged to know, and our support continued ever since. Rosemary and I shared the belief in being charitable and supporting work that helps children.
Our youngest Roland was involved in a terrible accident when he was 5 months old and suffered a brain injury. He underwent 13 surgeries over the following years. He unfortunately passed away in 2002 at the age of 34 and after his passing, we decided to set up the Roly Dunlop Legacy memorial fund and donate each year to CMRI in his name.
Before Rosemary’s passing in 2005, we were fortunate enough to have visited the Institute and to see and hear firsthand about the wonderful research that was being done in the area of Neurobiology.
A lot has changed at Children's Medical Research Institute since then and it continues to. That is why I have decided to leave my own lasting legacy through a gift in my Will to support the vital research undertaken well into the future.”
