Take a seat
As part of the refurbishment of the dining hall in 2013-14, the benches were replaced by new chairs. We are offering members of the College a unique opportunity to name a chair, for themselves or a loved one, in one of the oldest dining halls in Cambridge.
These chairs are constructed of European Oak and have been designed and made by distinguished furniture designer Luke Hughes.
For a donation of £1,000 (net) an inscription can be placed on a brass disc, 31mm diameter, on the back of the chair. This provides an opportunity to mark a special occasion or to remember a loved one in memoriam for years to come. Donors will also be invited to a lunch or dinner in the dining hall as a thank you, when you have the honour of sitting on "your" chair for that occasion. The donation covers the cost of the chair and will also contribute towards much-needed refurbishment of the College's buildings on the main site.
Inscriptions are limited to a number of characters and we request that they include names and dates only. There are a limited number of chairs and inscriptions will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Making a donation
Gifts can be made as a single gift (credit card, cheque or bank transfer) or as monthly/quarterly instalments over a maximum of two years. Donations can be gift-aided and made tax efficiently from the UK.
US taxpayers can make a donation tax efficiently via Cambridge in America. Tax efficient giving is also available from Hong Kong and some European countries.
