Dear Supporter,

We hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well in these uncertain times. We would like to take this opportunity again to send heartfelt thanks for your support for the Somerville Refugee Scholarship.

It is wonderful that the project has generated so much interest, and will make such an impact on our ability to support sanctuary students in the future. We are already in the position to welcome one such scholar at Somerville in the next academic cycle thanks to you. 

In our previous email we sent to you about this campaign, we advised that the appeal had been placed on pause, due to the current global situation and knowing that people had and have many other concerns at the front of their minds. However, we are looking forward to picking this appeal up again soon.  

We also wanted to inform you of an event which we think may be of interest to you. It is our immense privilege to welcome on 24th June at 6pm, Lord Dubs in conversation with broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky, discussing how institutions can speak out for refugees. We are delighted to return to this much-needed conversation, especially with the help of such distinguished guests.

These events will be livestreamed and there will be a chance to ask questions on the night as well. To sign up and receive a link to watch, please visit our website

Thank you again for your support, and wishing you the very best at this time. We look forward to keeping in touch with you on this important initiative.

Best wishes,

The Somerville Development Office
