St Anne’s Community Week and Giving Day 2021

Welcome to St Anne’s 3rd annual Community Week and Giving Day!

Community Week is centred around giving all of our St Anne’s community, including alumnae, students, staff and supporters, the opportunity to be involved and attend fun and entertaining events. This is particularly pertinent this year in a time when so many people are isolated and unable to see friends and family. Beginning on Wednesday 24th February, for 36 hours, we will also be holding our 2021 Giving Day where we will be raising funds to ensure that St Anne’s students continue to feel supported and that their education remains secure. We will also be raising funds for our Outreach and Access programme, which aims to reach the most disadvantaged young people with the greatest potential, helping them access the opportunities that should be available to them regardless of their background or circumstances.

Social media ambassadors

We are looking for social media ambassadors to help us spread the word 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.


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.
