Withington Calling 2019
Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak with our calling team during this year’s Withington Onwards Telephone Campaign.
The campaign ran from 20th August to 2nd September 2019 and, during that time, our team of committed and enthusiastic Withington pupils and recent leavers spoke to alumnae, parents and friends.
It was a great opportunity to keep in touch and for our callers to let people know about life at Withington today. As well as sharing our latest news and forthcoming events our callers also learned about the careers our alumnae and others have chosen. We were delighted with the number of people who offered to support current pupils with careers advice or mentoring to inspire, support and motivate the girls.
Crucially, the telephone campaign also invited friends of Withington to support the school and raise vital philanthropic funds. We are transforming the lives of young women and aim to do more through extending our means-tested bursary programme. Generous donors have helped us to continue our aims to ensure that financial constraints are not a barrier to a Withington education and to support projects that will enrich the education of all the girls in our care.
If you didn’t hear from us, please consider making a contribution. Together the Withington community gave over £386,000 last year and helped us support 1:6 of our girls with a means-tested bursary. Collectively, even small contributions can change lives.
You can make your donation online today. Thank you!
