2021 Telephone Campaign raises £150,000 for Foundation Awards

Our November telephone campaign involved 12 recent leavers working remotely together and speaking to over 400 OTs and parents to raise awareness and funds for our Foundation Award bursary programme.

Thanks to their hard work and enthusiasm, and the generosity of those to whom they spoke to, a substantial amount has been pledged to support current and future Foundation Award recipients. This is a wonderful indication of the Tonbridge community's support for the cause and we are truly grateful to all who have contributed.

As you can see from the comments below, our young callers thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained a lot.

"What I enjoyed most about the campaign was being able to relive experiences of my time at Tonbridge through listening to other OTs. It was a pleasure to reconnect with Old Tonbridgians and discover how the school has changed both before and since my time there. Alongside the social element, it was a pleasure to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause and support an institution which has given me so much. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience."   Timor (Sc 2013-18)

"It was great to be back in contact with the school and the social aspect of the campaign really made it. As a recent University leaver it was perfect timing to hear the varied routes taken after university by the different OT’s and ultimately a good chance to hear about different careers. Would definitely recommend to other leavers and particularly to University leavers who are looking to gain some valuable skills!" Max (PS 2012-17)

Thank you to everyone who supported this year's telethon.
