Girtonians around the world raise £268,000 in the 2024 telethon

Twelve student callers holding a sign reading Thank You!

Girton College’s annual telethon took place from Wednesday 3 April to Sunday 21 April 2024. During the three weeks, our brilliant team of 15 student callers contacted Girtonians all over the world to reconnect, network and raise funds. 

Our callers had more than 550 wonderful conversations with our alumni. Thanks to the generosity of the Girton community, the team raised £268,000 from more than 350 donors. 

Saranka Maheswaran (2023, HSPS), one of this year’s student callers, said:

“Being able to speak to the alumni was a lovely experience and it meant I found out a lot more about Girton and its history as a college. It was also very exciting to hear the different avenues alumni have pursued since leaving.”

This fantastic achievement will go a long way in supporting our students to flourish during their time at Girton. Visit our fundraising appeal web page to find out more about the projects these generous donations will support.

We are grateful to all our alumni who picked up the phone and spoke with our student caller, and to those who donated to this year’s appeal. Thank you once again for your support!
