Students Raised £67,000 for the 125 Fund during the annual telephone campaign.


Thanks to generous support from the University of Westminster's Alumni community, the annual 125 Fund Telephone Campaign raised £67,000.

The three-week campaign, which took place during November, involved 37 Westminster students contacting former students to hear about alumni experiences and raise money for the 125 Fund. The campaign provided students with invaluable work experience, training them on projects designed to help fellow students, and building their confidence by having conversations with the Westminster Alumni community.

During the campaign, students heard from alumni about their professional experiences and their time as a student, as well as receiving advice on different career options and discussing how alumni can support the University by volunteering or donating to The 125 Fund.

Since the end of the 2019 campaign, over 200 alumni have pledged to donate to The 125 Fund and many have shown an interest in joining the University's mentoring programme. The support provided during this year's campaign plays a vital role in enhancing student experience at Westminster.

This year in March, 122 students were awarded life enriching grants from The 125 Fund for a range of projects, which will help them with their employability and development.

Applications for the 2020 round of The 125 Fund grants are due to open early this year. The University is grateful to the Quintin Hogg Trust for extending their matched funding offer until 2020, helping us to create a transformative fund for the benefit of Westminster students.
