The Fitzwilliam Telephone Campaign is an important way the Fitz spirit stays strong and former and current students stay connected. Every year, hundreds of conversations are enjoyed, stories are shared, and a lot of laughter is had. And every year, alumni show amazing generosity in supporting the new generation studying at Fitzwilliam today.
During the last 10 years over 2,000 of you have generously pledged more than £1.8 million through the annual Telephone Campaign, which has made a real and measurable difference to our ability to support Fitzwilliam's students. Thank you.
This year, the Telephone Campaign took place from 23 September to 2 October. Our six student callers enjoyed speaking with alumni, and we thank you for your generosity, both through words and gifts. We are hugely grateful to everyone who donated to support the College and our students.
In October 2020, we welcomed our most socially diverse intake of Freshers ever. But with this achievement comes responsibility and we recognise the need to help those students who experience financial difficulty. Last year, 1,119 financial awards were made to students, and we expect that number to be higher this year, in part due to the pandemic. During the campaign, we asked alumni to lend a hand in helping us to ensure no one is held back from fulfilling their academic potential by money worries - to the many that have done so, thank you.
