The University of York alumni from across the globe have donated in their droves over recent weeks as part of the YuCall telethon.
Our autumn telethon started in October and it’s been a busy few weeks in the call room for our students. The generosity shown by alumni has been fantastic and we have raised over £70,000 so far. These donations will make an incredible impact on campus and support everything from the Equal Access Fund to the Library and Archives.
York students work part-time at YuCall to raise money on behalf of students, societies and sports clubs. They call alumni from all over the UK, USA and Canada and have the pleasure of hearing wonderful stories and memories.
Working as a student fundraiser is a really worthwhile experience! Not only does it provide you with skills that can benefit future career prospects, such as developing communication and negotiation skills but offers the opportunity to make a real positive difference to the university experience for students across campus.”
