John's Giving Back Day

Join us this John’s Day!

UPDATE: John's Day has been postponed until Thursday 20th June due to the inclement weather!

This year we’re inviting alumni and friends of College to join in the fun of John's Day on 20 June. Connect with us on social media, watch the raft race, enjoy the entertainment and raise a glass to Johnians around the world!

Sadly over the years we’ve lost touch with many alumni. We need your help to reconnect with as many alumni and friends as possible. Using social media, email and our website we hope to reach up to 250 Johnians who are ‘lost’ (for whom we have no contact details). Please do follow us, spread the word with Johnians with whom you are in touch and if you are able join in our Climb a Church Tower Challenge by posting a picture of yourself (and as many Johnians as you can muster) from the top of a church tower somewhere in the world…

At St John’s College we are blessed that many of our alumni and friends continue to act as ambassadors and champions for the College, giving back of their time, expertise and connections and offering financial gifts to support the ongoing advancement of the College for the next generation. The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is the fruit of hundreds of people’s labour and generosity. We’d like to shout out a big THANK YOU! to the many friends and alumni who’ve helped to realise the new LRC – which after years in planning and fundraising is finally nearing completion.

Our final push is to raise funds for the lecture room seats – you can even name your own seat through an individual or group gift or by pledging a small regular donation. When your donation reaches £250 we’ll inscribe a plaque with wording of your choice – to remember your days in College, or to honour a friend or colleague. Follow us and find out how you can help here and don't forget to share in the fun of the day via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

We hope you enjoy John's Giving Back Day!
