Following the success of last year’s Giving Tuesday, we participated in the 2018 global day of giving on Tuesday 27 November with the aim of raising £10,000 for student support.
Thanks to the generosity of over 80 donors, we raised in excess of £12,000 in one week, allowing us to release an additional £10,000 in matched funding from two alumni donors. The University gave a further £12,654 to support our efforts, bringing our grand total to over £34,000! This will enable us to award small hardship funds to undergraduate students who encounter unforeseen financial needs during their time here, and will also create a one-year fully-funded scholarship for an EU/Home graduate student obtaining his or her MSt in the Humanities.
This would not have been possible without the support of our alumni and friends. Thank you to all those who contributed to this appeal.
