Taking on a challenge



An example of the Circles of  Influence campaign in action is our  Chancellor’s Challenge Fund appeal.

Sir Dominic Cadbury, who retired  as Chancellor in December 2013,  is challenging alumni, friends and  supporters to raise a combined  £2 million for campus developments  by July 2014.

In autumn 2013, the first 800  donors who responded to a letter  from Sir Dominic saw their £3  gifts topped up to £100 by the  Chancellor himself. This appeal  raised more than £83,000 for the  new library and donations are still  coming in.

If you would like to support the  appeal, why not bake and sell cakes,  run a sponsored half-marathon or  make a gift today.
