St Anne’s first Community Week is due to take place from 25 February culminating in a Giving Day on 1/2 March. We hope to bring as many people from the St Anne’s community together in this week, including students, Fellows, staff, alumnae and friends. We will be hosting a range of events and hope that you and your family will be able to join us for at least one or more. We will also be raising funds for College by encouraging a wide network of people to support the College with donations towards outreach and welfare as well as thanking alumnae for the support they have given to College.
Social media ambassadors
We are looking for social media ambassadors to help us with this and would love to hear from you if you are a regular user of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube and willing to share even just a few of our posts. Find out more on our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d like to get involved in other ways, we’ll be inviting alumnae and friends to make a donation during the Giving Days on 1 and 2 March as well as holding a series of events.
