Word Cloud from Churchill College Gives Me Wall

Thank you to everyone who helped to make Churchill’s Giving Day a success.

Over 270 donors made a gift to the College this Giving Day, raising over £146,500. Completed challenges included Millennium Matrics and Global Giving, with 61 students and alumni who matriculated this millennium making a gift and donations being made from 18 countries. Over 8 – 9 March, more than 70 people made their first ever gift to the College.

Thank you to everyone who added their support to the Women in Science Bursary Fund, the Summer Opportunities Fund and the European Students’ Bursary Fund, as well as to those who made unrestricted donations which unlocked matching gifts into the Graduate Studentship Endowment Fund. Thanks to match funding, donations made both in College and online during Giving Day have an even greater impact for current and future students.

Our community of alumni, students, Fellows and staff celebrated what Churchill College means to us. Both online and in College, we reflected what Churchill College gives us. The word cloud above brings together the words that were written on cards pinned to the ChuGives Me… wall in the Buttery over Giving Day, with the largest words being those that appeared most often. 

Roary the Lion, our special guest, took the opportunity to roam the College to meet students and even braved the snow to visit the Churchill rowers at the Bumps.

Our prize draw winner was Hannah Burfield (U22) who is now kitted out with various pieces of Churchill merchandise including the Churchill lion pictured below.
