The Caller Reward Scheme

We are very grateful to all of our corporate benefactors who have kindly offered their support to the Annual Giving Programme through contributing to our Caller Reward Scheme.

This scheme asks local businesses to donate vouchers, discounts or merchandise so that we can offer prizes and awards to our student callers thanking them for the hard work they do throughout the telephone appeal. The exciting gifts we receive help motivate our enthusiastic callers and encourage them to contribute to a successful telephone appeal.

We have been delighted by the amount of support we have received since launching the scheme and we look forward to further success as more and more businesses get involved. The support received from our corporate benefactors helps us to make a real difference to students studying at the University today and to our students of the future.

There are benefits for our benefactors as well. Upon donating to the scheme your business will be listed on our website, which can be viewed by our current students, alumni and the local community; spreading the word about your business and its charitable contributions.

If your business is able to support the Annual Giving Programme in any way, please contact our team at
