Telethon 2017

You are here

We look forward to speaking with you

In the run-up to Easter this year, 15 current students and our JCR President will be phoning alumni like you, to ask about your experience at Homerton, what you’ve done since leaving the College, and to hear any career advice you'd care to pass on. Additionally, our students are keenly aware of the need for financial support – whether this be hardship bursaries, additional academic support, or enhancing the student experience. You can help bridge the gap in much needed funding.

We hope you’ll enjoy having a conversation with a student, and hear about how Homerton continues to grow and flourish, and how you can support current and future students in their endeavours.

Last year, your generosity contributed to over £90,000 of new funding for students at Homerton through our Telethon.

Student support

Including:

  • academic support for current students, both undergraduate and graduate.  Examples include book grants, travel grants, research support, Year Abroad support, and the ‘academic skills’ programme.
  • hardship grants to help meet living expenses – i.e. to prevent any student dropping out of their course.

The student experience

Studenthood is a critical time for personal development: students use this time to explore and discover who they will become.

Your help is needed for:

  • Extra-curricular activity, including sports, music, and drama
  • Personal development and employability, for example vacation courses and the ‘life skills’ programme.
If you’d like to join in and support students at Homerton, please visit: http://www.homerton.cam.ac.uk/alumni/supportinghomerton
If you have any questions, please do feel free to contact us by emailing development@homerton.cam.ac.uk or phoning 01223 747280.

In 2015, Cambridge launched a fundraising campaign – including all 31 Colleges. The campaign is a collaborative enterprise to help Cambridge better serve society through our extraordinary people and our inspiring environment, and Homerton is excited to be a part of it. Every gift to Homerton contributes to the campaign, and we are very grateful for your support.
