Rachel graduated from Homerton College in July 2017 with a BA in Music.
My role is to support the Project Manager and Development team during the celebrations for the 250th Anniversary of Homerton College. To mark the occasion, an exciting programme of events named Homerton 250: Cambridge Now will run throughout 2018. Bringing together Homertonians from across the years, as well as the wider Cambridge community, this anniversary year will both celebrate and promote Homerton’s past, present, and future. To help us tell the world about Homerton College in its 250th year, we are also building a mini-website that will go live in 2017. We want to showcase the people, stories and objects that have made Homerton College what it is today, and for this we need your help! If you have a story, object or photo that you think should be included, please email me!
