That the Parliament commends the Carnegie UK Trust on 100 years of working to improve the lives and wellbeing of people throughout the UK and Ireland as it celebrates its centenary throughout 2013; understands that, since its founding by Andrew Carnegie, the Dunfermline-born businessman and philanthropist, the trust has awarded extensive grants, created and supported new organisations and commissioned many reports on major social issues; wishes the trust success with the range of events and projects that will mark its centenary, including a book and film charting the trust’s work, the launching of a centenary website and online searchable archive and the supporting of musical initiatives, and looks forward to welcoming the Carnegie UK Trust to the Parliament in October 2013 for the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy.
