Impact of donations to be celebrated at Inaugural Donor Day

The University is hosting its Inaugural Donor Day on campus today (Thursday 16 March) to celebrate the support that donors provide to the University.

Attendees will meet students and academics to hear first-hand how their donations have impacted upon the University. Guests will also be able to witness the benefits through a range of exclusive tours of new developments on campus.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robert Allison will make a speech and thank donors at the Donor Day lunch, where over 80 guests are expected to attend.

In the evening, scholarship donors have been invited to the Donors and Scholars Reception to meet with the students who have benefited from their gifts. Scholarships are instrumental in enabling students to study at Loughborough and benefit from the outstanding teaching and facilities on campus.

The scholarships that will be represented are Development Trust Scholarships; Sport Scholarships; Water, Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC) Scholarships and Ford Blue Oval Scholarships.

Over 220 students have been supported through scholarships from donations to the University for this academic year, 2016-17.
