Just wanted to post another thank you to everyone who donated! We will be sending out thank you emails and gifts to those who claimed them very soon. In the Easter vacation this years Roadshow went ahead and it was a great success! We changed perceptions and will hopefully be seeing applications from some of the individuals we met in the near future! <3

Thank you so much for your generous support of our project. We have left for the Somerville Roadshow, and we look forward to updating you all when we return! Your support has been invaluable.

If you have selected a ‘reward’, we will be in touch in Trinity Term – so please do keep an eye out! There are still 11 days to go on the project, and all money raised above the target will be directed towards our general access work. As a reminder, your kind donation will be taken after 25th March when the campaign finishes.

Thank you again,

The Somerville Student Ambassadors

We are delighted to have reached our target! We are looking to continue raising money until our project reaches the deadline, so that even more can be invested in access initiatives! Thank you all so much for your support❤️

Congratulations! The work you are doing is so important. I came to Somerville from a rural working class background in 1964. I was aware of the differences in my background compared with most of my contemporaries, but I never regarded Oxford as 'too posh' for me, even though it was much posher then. (In those days there were still closed scholarships ie scholarships at certain colleges only being available to pupils from certain schools - public schools, of course.) It grieves me that some young people still have inaccurate perceptions and I applaud your work in changing it.

Thank you all so much for the support! It is really appreciated by the ambassadors and the college as a whole. The difference that this will make to potential applicants cannot be stressed enough! We are getting an overwhelming amount of support and if it keeps going at this rate we may even be able to secure more activities to widen access to the college and make Oxford as a whole a more accessible place!
