In his annual address today, Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Toope announced the Harding Challenge, made possible by the £100 million gift from David and Claudia Harding in February this year.

Their vision is to encourage new donors to collegiate Cambridge and support students in greatest need across the University. This Challenge is an opportunity to enhance the impact of your generosity and multiply the power of your donation.

Over the next financial year, if you are a new donor and give to any aspect of the student support initiative, your gift will unlock, pound for pound, a contribution to a special fund for undergraduate financial support.

Your donation to College student support will benefit not only students at Trinity Hall but also undergraduates in greatest need across Cambridge, enabling us to do more for them than ever before. It will in turn inspire others. Gifts of any size up to £100,000 qualify — every pound makes a difference.
