Following recent media coverage of Azerbaijan/UK financial matters, the Society wishes to make it clear that it is not a lobbying organisation. Our work as a friendship society covers culture links, student exchanges and humanitarian activity - such as the support we are giving to skills development in Children's homes in Azerbaijan. Our funds come wholly from sponsorship by companies active in the UK and Azerbaijan, member subscriptions, and fund raising events
It is with the deepest sorrow that I have to inform our sponsors and members of the death of Dr. Kenneth Forrest, CBE, who died on Saturday 11th November 2017 after a long illness.
Ken, who was the Honorary Secretary, was very committed to the work of the Society and contributed a great deal of his time and effort, for which the Executive are truly grateful.
Our thoughts and condolences are with Ken’s family at this sad time.
