Community Week and Giving Day
During the week of 26 October, we held our first ever Community Week and Giving Day. Our aim was to bring together Mansfield's global community of alumni, students, staff and friends, to celebrate College with a range of socially distanced and online activities, and to raise funds to support Mansfield and its students in what is an exceptionally difficult year.
Throughout the week, there were on-site (socially distanced) activities for students, including origami making and pumpkin carving, as well as fundraising challenges, for the whole College community to take part in, including 1,886 laps of the Quad and a 12-hour erg challenge. There were also plenty of opportunities for those based off-site to get involved too, including Mansfield-themed bakes and online reunions for alumni.
Thank you to everyone who got involved in making the week a success. Special thanks to the many donors who supported our College priorities. To date, over £70,000 has been raised thanks to the generosity of alumni, staff, students and friends of College. We are extremely grateful to all of you and look forward to reporting how your donations will be making a difference to the lives of Mansfield students.
