Wadham calling 2014

16th September 2014

Wadham's telethon kicks off on Saturday 20 September. Our student callers are manning the phones to talk to alumni and ask for support towards the Wadham Fund.

Over two weeks from Saturday 20 September, Wadham students will be telephoning alumni with updates on College news and views and to find out about life after Wadham.

This year’s telethon involves 14 undergraduate students, under the guidance of Development Officer, Laurelle Vingoe.

The telephone campaign has taken place nearly every year since its inauguration in 2004. In addition to being a great way of catching up with our alumni, it has become an important fundraising event and our students will also be asking, on behalf of the College, for regular donations towards the Wadham Fund.

Last year more than £223,000 was donated to Wadham as a result of the telephone campaign. The money went towards priority projects in College, including our renowned Access programme, student hardship grants and bursaries, protecting the tutorial system and maintaining and improving College buildings and facilities.

We hope that you enjoy speaking to one of our wonderful Wadhamites!
