Our next Telephone Campaign will run from 21 March until 8 April 2020. We plan to recruit up to 15 students who will call more than 800 alumni and have fun and engaging conversations. Furthermore, they will be seeking to raise £175,000 for the Trinity Hall Fund. We look forward to speaking with you!
It was a fascinating experience calling up people and having an instant connection with them. Some of the stories that came up made me laugh out loud! In a way it did not matter if they were some kind of CEO – we both shared that bond of being from the Hall. So many people from all over the place clearly care about the Hall and hearing them offer to continue supporting was rather humbling. It was a great way of getting exposure to people from all walks of life and learning how to talk with them in a polite, calm and professional manner. I have ended up having to do a fair bit of fundraising in my current job and this was really helpful for learning how to do it.
