The campaign aims to build a community of donors who are engaged, passionate and committed to supporting Westminster students now and for many years to come.
Our team of 40 student callers will be speaking to over 1000 Westminster alumni across three weeks, sharing experiences of university life, gaining valuable career advice and seeking support for The 125 Fund and the University’s mentoring programme.
Being part of the calling campaign is a fantastic employment opportunity for Westminster students, as it gives them the chance to develop their communication and relationship-building skills, while enhancing their work experience portfolio.
Poleta Ianeva, a second year Photography BA Honours student, said: “I’m excited for the opportunity to work on this campaign as it gives me the chance to be a part of something bigger and help initiatives to flourish. It is good to work for something you believe in.”
Earlier this year, 92 students were awarded life-changing grants from The 125 Fund to help them reach their true potential. Sasha Pinnock, Fashion Business Management MA student, was able to start a unique busness creating fashionable reflective safety jackets for primary school children.
She says: “The 125 Fund enabled me to develop my busness idea and further develop myself professionally. It has given me the confidence to believe in my project and to create something that not only makes a profit but will also make a real difference in young peoples lives and help parents keep their children safe.
“Some students may not come from a background where they get help to build on themselves and their future goals. The 125 Fund helps individuals to gain perspective on their future and to think about what they really want to achieve.”
All Westminster students are eligible to apply for a grant from The 125 Fund with the second round of applications opening in January 2018.
