Our previous telethon team.
Autumn 2018 telethon set to begin
Our autumn telethon will begin in October when a team of students will call a selection of our alumni to find out about their time during and after University, as well as seeking important support for our Making the Exceptional Happen Campaign.
We are currently busy recruiting the team who are hoping to build upon the success of last year, when we spoke to more than 1,700 alumni and raised over £110,000. The telethon also gives our students the opportunity to connect with our alumni community whilst providing them with invaluable skills and experience:
“I chose to get involved in the telephone campaign because I love the idea of speaking to alumni, finding out about their experiences and what the University was like when they were here. I also have a number of friends who receive a bursary and I can see with my own eyes the difference that alumni donations are making to their lives! I’d love to be a part of helping to raise money for the next generation of students.” (Rachel, previous student caller.)
We start calling on Monday 29 October and the campaign will run for a total of five weeks. We call from 6.15pm to 9.30pm on weekdays, and from 12.45pm to 5pm on Saturdays and from 3.45pm to 8pm on Sundays.
