2020 Telephone Campaign – POSTPONED

17th-30th March 2020


Dear all,

I am sure that you will understand that, in the present circumstance, we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s telethon. The Vice-Chancellor has advised that all domestic undergraduate students should return home for the break unless they have a compelling reason to stay. We have taken the same decision for our students and staff. While I do hope that you agree, we know how many of our alumni thoroughly enjoy speaking with our students, just as our students enjoy speaking with you. After careful consideration, we feel strongly that this decision is necessary especially in light of the continued concern and uncertainly about the spread of the coronavirus. Ensuring that our students are safe and well is our priority.

The situation is changing very quickly every day and St Hugh’s is doing all it can to respond and to keep our students and staff safe. We also appreciate that this will be a difficult time for you and your loved ones and we send you all our best wishes.

With all best wishes,

Dame Elish Angiolini & The Development Team at St Hugh’s
