If you are worried about the commitment, please bear in mind that the campaign only lasts two weeks and most of the work takes place in the evening. The campaign starts on 16 March 2020 and finishes on 30 March 2020. Training will take place in the daytime on 16 and 17 March and is paid. All calling sessions take place in the evening and at weekends.

Meet last year’s team of student callers

Last year’s Telephone Campaign took place over two weeks in March.  Our students really enjoyed the chance to connect with and learn from their predecessors, and talk about some of the exciting projects we have going on at the Hall. A big thank you to all the alumni who spoke to the team and have raised £220,000 so far!
