Remember sitting down for long hours of study at Hills Road? Now's your chance to have a permanent seat in the College!
No hard wooden chairs for our students!
Hills Road Alumni are launching our first major fundraising campaign! We're asking you to donate to help us furnish the new Student Services Zone.
At a time when students are under more pressure than ever, we believe a central, tailored space for Student Support is essential, and we need your help to make it as comfortable and welcoming as possible.
What is The Zone?
The College is redeveloping the area near the Atrium that was vacated by the Mathematics department (following the opening of the Linda Sinclair building in Purbeck Road in May 2016), to create a brand new Student Services Zone in the heart of the College. The new space will be welcoming and bright, with an open plan office opposite Café Direct.
The Zone will include a Student Services Team who are on hand to offer help and support to all students, a Supported Independent Learning Service (SILS) staffed by a SILS Officer to assist and support students with their learning, and the relocated Careers department including careers library and interview rooms.
Why do we need you?
With ever shrinking government funding we are appealing to you, our former students who benefited from being at Hills Road, to contribute to a fund to raise £10,000 to furnish and decorate this new area.
We will be very grateful for your donations, of whatever size. If you contribute a certain amount you will be acknowledged as follows:
£10+ Your name listed in one of our alumni email newsletters
£25+ Your name acknowledged in one of the College's termly newsletters
£100+ Your name on a funding ‘plaque’ displayed in the new Zone
We would also like to welcome back all alumni who contribute to The Zone – we hope to organise a gathering sometime in 2017 and will let you all know the exact date nearer the time.
Want to help?
Please contact Viv Brownlee if you've got any questions or would like to arrange a donation via cheque or bank transfer. VBrownlee@hillsroad.ac.uk 01223 278012
