Welcoming Back Our Donors

Our Donor Appreciation Reception was held on the 21st of April with over 80 students, staff, alumni and community members in attendance.Donor Reception 2021

The event was not only an opportunity to thank all of those who contribute to our scholarship program, but a chance for them to meet their scholarship recipients and other students receiving financial support.

In the wake of COVID it was the first time in over twelve months that we’d been able to host an event for the wider UC community, and I think we can confidently say those in attendance were thrilled to be back on campus (and we were equally thrilled to welcome them). It was so uplifting to see the interaction between our guests and students again, who had a fantastic time hearing the stories of our alumni and donors.

In a UC first, a marquee was hired so we could host the reception in the gorgeous Giblin Courtyard and avoid the increasingly chilly autumn evenings. Complete with heaters and beautifully decorated by our events and facilities teams, the marquee was a huge success.
