It is my enormous pleasure to say thank you for your support and to share with you the many ways in which Exeter alumni, friends and supporters are helping to change lives. As we draw to the end of National Volunteers' Week, I’ve been reflecting on what it means to me to be a supporter of Exeter. I’ve been volunteering my time and expertise since early 2013, as the volunteer lead on the Alumni Network Group, giving careers talks and offering careers advice to current students and recent graduates. I loved my time at university and genuinely feel like I owe a huge amount to the experiences and learning I received there. Giving my time and expertise is my way of saying thank you and giving something back. I find it enormously satisfying to be able to use my skills as Head of Volunteering at Marie Curie, to offer strategic advice, and my experience to support current students considering a career in the charity sector. Your support is life changing for Exeter students, staff and the alumni community. You give your time. You give your money. You give your expertise. The University couldn’t have come this far without you. I hope you enjoy reading about the many benefits your support has brought to the University of Exeter; the University’s continued success is greatly helped by the time and effort you put into improving the quality of the student experience. From one supporter to another my sincerest thanks go to Exeter’s alumni, supporters and friends whose gifts of time and money have enriched the Exeter community.
