Putney is delighted to announce that The GDST Alumna Of the Year Award has gone to Jenny Beavan, Class of 1968, the 2016 Oscar and BAFTA award winner for’Best Costume Design’ for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’. The annual award celebrates the considerable achievements of GDST alumnae and it recognises those who have championed a charitable cause, achieved outstanding academic or professional success, driven social or environmental change or provided inspiration to women or young people. Jenny is donating the £500 prize money to the charity World’s End Neighbourhood Advice Centre. Part of their work is to run a ‘Women’s Refuge’ which helps women who have escaped abusive homes and relationships and are left with nothing. Jenny donates both her own clothes and modern clothes left over from films to the charity. Many congratulations Jenny!
