Ask an Architect
The ask an architect 2021 initiative is live and gives members of the public the chance to get an hour long consultation with a chartered architect in return for a minimum charitable donation of £40 to Friends of the Cancer Centre in partnership with the Jill Todd Trust, in an initiative organised by the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA). There are over forty architectural practices participating in 2021.
Last year in 2020, £15,000 was raised to support the work of Friends of the Cancer Centre, and the initiative has grown each year introducing potential clients to architects while fundraising to help the local fight against cancer.
The Jill Todd Trust was set up to commemorate Jill whose life was taken by cancer. Jill was 23 and the daughter of local architect Barrie Todd. The Trust presents funds raised to Friends of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital to support cancer research in Northern Ireland.
