Dear Principal and Fellows These are terrible times for country and college. I hope that you will be successful in raising the funds needed to support students. With warm regards Swee Choo

This is a small gift for current students- they need our support now. Irene Lynch Fannon

I feel so sorry for all young people at the moment which is why I want to do something to contribute to helping the students at Somerville. Hoping the support you are giving will limit the damage to their university experience.

I deliberately did not add gift aid this time as I don't pay enough income tax now - sorry!

Glad to support Somerville students to help them get through covid and associated problems.

Thank you, Somerville, for being so supportive of and caring towards students at this difficult time.

Good luck!

Best wishes to all concerned, thanks for making this possible.

A very convenient way to contribute.

Anything that can be done to alleviate students' difficulties so that they can get on with their work, should be done. Thank you Somerville for the wonderfully formative years that I had as a student.

Great good luck and love, Alison Skilbeck

Good luck. The Collegiate system comes into its own at this time

Great initiative. Happy to support

Hope you hit your target. Keep Safe!

Thanks for the care you have taken of the students coming from abroad who needed to do two weeks quarantine. Much appreciated.

Somerville will find a way!

Good luck!

Very best wishes for the term ahead.

My wife Dr Jacqueline Mitton (Pardoe) and our older daughter Lavinia Mitton are Somervillians

Good luck to all the students - it is a strange old time and hope you can feel the support of all those of us willing you on to find your way to thrive and help us create a new different and better way for living on our planet as part of the Somerville community.

I feel so sorry for this generation of Somervillians. I live up the road. Please let me know if there is anything practical a local can do to help them.

Sorry, but I cannot make a Gift Aid of this contribution this year.

Good luck with this excellent idea.

Sorry I can't give more. Hope every bit helps.

Students need support in these most difficult of times.
