That’s £5,764 including Gift Aid! 🎉🥳

Thank you to the 49 donors who gave generously and made this possible! We reached our target of £3,000 just 3 days into fundraising – I am still blown away by this – and on 31 July all pledges were received.

On behalf of myself and the the Churchill Development team, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who shared, supported, donated or gave in any other way towards this project. I recently learned that I was one of only 9 Black British Caribbean women admitted to Cambridge out of 2,600 freshers, in my freshers year. It means the world that this project by Churchill and myself can go ahead so that we can help increase numbers such as those.

The total raised could stretch as far as 6 students a year receiving gifts of up to £100 each, for 10 years! THANK YOU!

Please stay tuned for updates on the awardees in the coming months.
