2019 Telephone Campaign

12th-25th March 2019

From 12th -25th March, 13 current St Hugh’s students spoke with 470 alumni around the world as part of our annual Telethon campaign, sharing College memories, chatting to alumni about their experiences after leaving St Hugh’s, and thanking them for their support.

The student team, a mix of undergrads and grads, also sought support for the Discretionary Fund which supports undergraduate and graduate scholarships, the student hardship fund, the upkeep of our beautiful gardens, as well as the modernisation of our buildings.

At the end of the two weeks, a record-breaking £153,000 was raised for the Discretionary Fund, with gifts still coming in (£166,000 as of 1 May). Currently, we have received 235 gifts, with 50% of calls resulting in a gift. The 2019 Telethon has emphasised the remarkable goodwill and generosity in our alumni community and we are very thankful to not only all of our donors and alumni, but also to everyone at St Hugh’s who makes this work possible.
