Telethon 2017

You are here

More than £110,000 raised for student support

Over the last three weeks, 16 current students and our JCR President spoke with alumni like you during our annual Telethon, finding out about your experience at Homerton, what you’ve done since leaving the College, and hearing any career advice you've kindly offered. Thanks to your generous support, more than £110,000 has been raised to benefit students – through hardship bursaries, additional academic support, and enhancing the student experience. You are helping to bridge the gap in much needed funding!

We hope you enjoyed having a conversation with a student, hearing about how Homerton continues to grow and flourish, and finding out how you can support current and future students in their endeavours.

Thank you again for your support!

If you wish to make a gift this year, you can do so easily online through our ways of giving page.

Student support


  • 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.

Greatest need

Many Homertonians donate out of affection, affinity, nostalgia, and a general desire to ‘give something back’.  This is a general, unrestricted contribution and the College will apply the funds to where they are most needed.
