How Legacies have benefitted the College
Legacies to the College have helped make a real difference to the College and generations of students. Below are some examples of how legacy gifts have supported the College.
"It is now time to return something of the benefit I received to the Hall so that others may participate in the same good fortune. To me, it is the most deserving of causes."
Clive Thorne (1971, Law)
Mr Gordon Strangeways (TH, 1935) gave a legacy to endow the award of scholarships, studentships or bursaries for students at Trinity Hall in the name of Strangeways to commemorate the 6 members of the family who attended the College in 30s and 50s. This legacy provides several annual awards for students in need.
Mrs Ivy Cooney bequeathed a half share of her estate to Trinity Hall in memory of her son, the late Norman Ellis Craig (1948). Specifically directed to benefit the Buildings fund, her legacy was used to create the Norman Craig Ellis Room in M Staircase to house the College archives.
The development of new student accommodation at Wychfield was made possible through a generous legacy to the College, from former Fellow Dr Graham Storey OBE (1939). View the Wychfield Gallery.
