UNIVERSITY of Kent bosses are celebrating after receiving two donations from former graduates.

Kennedy Wong who went to the university’s Kent Law School at Canterbury is now based in Hong Kong. He has pledged to give the university £500,000 over the next five years for legal studies facilities.

It is the single largest gift from a former student the university has received since it opened in 1965.

Sir David Akers-Jones, a former Chief Secretary and Acting Governor of Hong Kong, has given £20,000 for a bursary fund to promote student study and work placements abroad.
