A message of thanks from the Vice-Chancellor

The University of Kent transforms the world for the better. You can see

throughout this Donor Report how our research, teaching, business

relationships and community interactions have a positive impact upon our

local surroundings, and on the national and international stage. I thank

everyone who has supported the work of the University. With your generosity

we have enormous impact, achieved through delivering world-class higher


The University is succeeding in some very challenging circumstances. We are

popular with students, and our consistently excellent results in the National

Student Survey are testament to the fact that undergraduates have a

rewarding student experience here. That experience is based on the

fundamental principle that the University is a community where there is a

symbiotic relationship between teaching and research. To maintain this

position we must invest in new or refreshed facilities, and in our academic


The tangible impact of philanthropy can be seen on our campus. The Colyer-

Fergusson music building would not have been possible without the vision,

and financial contribution, of our supporters. Thank you for your generosity,

your continued support, and for being part of the community which strives to

improve the University of Kent. Together we will provide excellent higher

education for students, and leading research into the future.

Professor Dame Julia M Goodfellow DBE, CBE

UK charitable tax news

UK fundraisers and donors

celebrated the decision by

Chancellor of the Exchequer

George Osborne to abandon his

plans to cap income tax relief

on charitable donations.

The reversal of the March 2012 budget

proposal came after three months of

sustained lobbying from across the

charitable sector and high-level dialogue

with government officials that was led by a

consortium of organisations, including the

Council for the Advancement and Support

of Education (CASE Europe) and

Universities UK.

This reversal was welcomed by all

universities as the cap threatened to

undermine work we have undertaken since

2004 to increase the professionalism of

fundraising as a way to grow independent

income sources, and engage alumni,

businesses and the local community.

50th anniversary celebrations

We celebrate our

50th anniversary in the

2014/15 academic year,

and exciting plans are

in place to celebrate

the University of Kent’s

many achievements and

vision for the future. These





events will involve all members of the

University community – including students,

staff, alumni and friends. They will also

give us the opportunity to show

appreciation to everyone who has been

part of the University’s success over the

past half-century.

Key initiatives include the launch of a

fundraising campaign to create an

opportunity fund that will enable students

to reach their personal best through

participation in an extensive and

challenging range of activities that will

stretch their academic development. We

are sincerely grateful to the large number

of alumni and friends who already give

generously to support students, and hope

that the 50th anniversary celebrations will

give many more alumni the opportunity to

play a part in our future.

50th anniversary celebrations, contact us


Donor Pin Week – University of

Kent celebrates as generous

donors boost success

In May, the University of Kent took part in

national Donor Pin Week in which we

marked the enormous impact of donations

to universities. In the last financial year, the

University of Kent raised £1.9 million in

donations. This has not only contributed

to capital projects but also enabled

improvements to student facilities, as well

as supporting student activities and

academic research.

“The Chancellor announced he

would not proceed with the

proposed limits on tax reliefs for

charitable donations. This was a

surprising, yet deeply welcome

move. Despite the proposal being

unworkable, unfair, uninformed by

evidence, and opposed by a unique

coalition of donors, charities and

public opinion – the government

seemed unlikely to pursue the only

‘U’ anyone wanted: a full U-turn.”

Dr Beth Breeze from the University’s

Centre on Philanthropy

Campaign reports

Colyer-Fergusson Building

We would like to thank

everyone who made it possible

to build the wonderful Colyer-

Fergusson Building – a catalyst

for enabling music-making to

flourish and develop at the

University of Kent.

It is hard to believe we only went public

with the £8.2million capital campaign in

2010. However, Susan Wanless (Director

of University Music) and others at the

University had been working quietly for

many years with our founding donor Sir

James Colyer-Fergusson, and the family

foundation that bears his name. Their

dream was to build a unique home for our

musicians – the one thing that had been

missing from our music-making for so

many years.

It must have been written in the stars, as the

timing of the £5.2million Colyer-Fergusson

donation was perfect. It coincided with the

government’s matched funding scheme,

thereby granting us access to an additional

£1.35million. So, with nearly £7million

secured, we began a campaign that

opened up opportunities for everyone

involved in the University of Kent’s musical

life. The response from alumni, current and

ex-staff, the governing body, students and

members of the local community has been

greater than to any other University

campaign. This includes the original call for

funding to start a new university in 1965.

And now it’s here. The Colyer-Fergusson

Building is up and running, with a grand

official gala opening in December 2012.

For those of you who not only hit that

‘donate now’ button, but also wrote to say

how much music has meant to you, you

will be pleased to see that the building

sits adjacent to the Gulbenkian Theatre

and Cinema. From that synergy, we are

confident that the Arts will be at the heart

of the University’s Canterbury Campus.

From January 2013 the building will be

fully operational for rehearsals and

performances, both by University musicians

and local musicians. We hope to see you

at many of our future events. Or why not

just drop in for coffee and relax in the

unique ambiance? You will always be

most welcome.

“Congratulations on the new music

performance centre. In a world

where economics and business rule

everything, this is no small feat!”

“I rejoice with you at the imminent

opening of the University of Kent

Music Building.”

“It was so lovely to receive your

Christmas card! Incredible, it’s

almost 18 years since I first came

to Canterbury! And it was really

you who started my professional

singing career, by granting me the

bursary. Do you remember?

Thanks ever so much for

everything you have done for me!”

“It’s been great to follow the

news of your building in the

alumnus magazine. I’m plotting

a trip to see the finished article...

Congratulations on all your

“I have been totally overwhelmed

by the extraordinary response to

our fundraising campaign. To

everyone, I would like to say a

heartfelt thank-you for helping

us to make this pipedream a

reality. The Colyer-Fergusson

Building is a truly wonderful

venue which will inspire

musicians and audiences for

generations to come, and it’s

lovely to think that everyone

who walks through its doors will

see the names of all those who

have made this possible.”

Kent Law Campaign

Educating, innovating and

widening access to justice

Kent has long enjoyed a well-deserved

reputation as one of the best university

law schools in this country. That is due in

part to its long established, hugely

successful, and award winning Law Clinic,

of which both the University of Kent and

our alumni are justifiably very proud.

The Law Clinic provides legal advice and

representation for asylum seekers and

immigrants who could not otherwise

obtain it. It also enhances students’

knowledge and understanding of law and

policy in this area, and also the conditions

and problems facing immigrants and

asylum seekers. In addition, the funding

we receive helps support research

publication which will stimulate thinking

about these matters within academia and

in society generally, including in relation to

changes in legal aid.

Our campaign to raise funds for new, stateof-the-art

facilities to house the Clinic and

a Moot Court has received magnificent

support from students, staff, University


organisations and alumni. In addition,

the Clinic received £180,000 from three

separate international charities: Unbound

Philanthropy (£90,000), the Samuel Sebba

Trust (£45,000) and the Metropolitan

Migration Foundation (£45,000). This will

support a three year, fixed-term Clinic

Solicitor post working exclusively in the

field of immigration and asylum law.

The new facilities will be essential if Kent

Law School is to continue providing its

students with the kind of the intellectually

challenging and practically focused legal

education for which it is renowned. As the

chair of the Campaign Board, I am very

grateful indeed to all of those who have

already donated so generously to the Kent

Law Campaign. This has enabled us, with

the University's pledge to match each

donation £1 for £1, to raise over £1.2m.

As a result, even at this early stage, we

are almost 25% towards our target.

So a huge and heartfelt “thank you” to all

our donors, to all my fellow Campaign

Board members, and to all of those who

have agreed to become Campaign

Chair of Campaign Board

support. It’s a great boost for those

assistance, and for the students who

in this area, seeing for themselves

its impact in society.”

Hong Kong and China Portal

The Hong Kong and China Portal is a

five-year project aimed at raising £2 million

to support new scholarship, student

exchange and research initiatives in Hong

Kong and mainland China. It is supported

by a Fundraising Advisory Board, chaired

by alumnus Dr William Lo E80.

Alumnus Dr Kennedy Wong has pledged

£500,000 over five years to help the

University develop its legal studies

facilities, and this year the University is

delighted to award the first of three

scholarships from the Jackie Chan

Charitable Foundation for postgraduate

students in the School of Arts.

The University is extremely grateful for the

support of our alumni in Hong Kong, and

especially to the Executive Committee of

the Hong Kong Alumni Association for

supporting the prestigious Hong Kong

Alumni Scholarship, for students from

Hong Kong and mainland China.

Alumni giving

The Kent Scholarships Campaign has

continued to receive fantastic support

from alumni this year. In March, a team of

current students took part in a phonathon

speaking to over 2,000 alumni about their

time at Kent and raising over £72,000 in

support of the campaign.

In the current difficult economic climate

and with the approaching rise in tuition

fees, students are facing increasing

financial barriers to entering higher

education. Donations received in support

of the Kent Scholarships Campaign

help the University to break down these

barriers through the provision of hardship

bursaries and scholarships including the

prestigious Alumni Postgraduate


Since its establishment in 1995, the Alumni

Postgraduate Research Scholarship has

supported 21 outstanding postgraduate

students who have all benefitted from

fantastic research, travel and networking

opportunities as a result of the

scholarship. Donations from the Kent

Scholarships Campaign have funded

three Alumni Postgraduate Research

Scholarships this year, including Katy

Upton who is in the middle of a life

changing six-month conservation research

expedition to the Peruvian Amazon.

Hardship bursaries are another very

important element of the Kent

Scholarships Campaign, as without these

bursaries many students in extreme

financial difficulty would be forced to drop

out of University. Alumni support means

the world to those students who benefit

from this generosity – especially knowing

it is former students who have made a

difference to their lives.

“I am incredibly grateful for this

bursary, which will allow me to

continue my studies at the

University of Kent and prevent me

from becoming homeless or having

to leave university to find full time

employment. Without the support

of either of my parents I have no

home to return to during summer

holidays. But now I will be able to

afford accommodation, bills and

general living costs and will be able

to return to university in

September, to continue my studies,

with teaching as my ultimate goal.”

Scholarships and prizes

Santander Scholarship

We are very proud that the University

of Kent this year joined ‘Santander

Universities UK’. This is a philanthropic

initiative through which the bank offers

extensive support to higher education

institutions. It is a global network, set up

with the express desire to help current

students become tomorrow’s leaders.

With an annual donation from Santander,

we will be able to offer three international

scholarships for academic excellence at

postgraduate level, and several mobility

awards to allow both staff and students to

enhance their learning and research

activities. In addition, we can increase the

amount of entrepreneurial support we give

to our students.

A further advantage of being in this

partnership is the access we gain to an

extensive international educational

network, particularly in South America.

We hope to use this to engage in new

discussions with a variety of organisations,

from which we confidently expect new

educational partnerships to be formed.

“We only began our journey

together a few months ago.

However, I am certain that this

collaboration will continue for

many years. With over 60

universities in the UK and nearly

1,000 worldwide, Santander

Universities was created to foster

internationalisation, knowledge

transfer and quality in education

and research. The University of

Kent embodies all these and

that’s why we consider it the

perfect partner.”

University of Kent in America

(UKA) Scholarship

There are currently over 4,000 Kent

alumni living in the United States. Many

are expatriate British graduates, who

went on to build their careers and lives

there. Others are US citizens who studied

for their undergraduate or postgraduate

qualifications at the University of Kent, or

perhaps just spent a short time here on

a study-abroad program. Many of our

American alumni have described their

experience at the University of Kent as

life-changing, and have been inspired

to pledge their support to provide a

scholarship to allow others to experience

life here.

Thanks to the generosity of our US-based

alumni, we were delighted to welome our

first UKA-funded scholar to study here in

2011. The University of Kent in America

Scholarship provides financial support to

an outstanding US student undertaking

postgraduate study at the University of

Kent. In 2011-2012, this was awarded to

Eric MacTaggart, who arrived in

September 2011 to pursue an MA in the

Philosophy of Art and Aesthetics.

Alongside fundraising activity, UKA has

been working hard to deliver a programme

of events across the United States, with

activities taking place in Los Angeles, San

Francisco, New York, Chicago and

Washington DC. Members of the Board

have enjoyed having the opportunity to

meet alumni and hear what their time at the

University of Kent meant to them. Over the

next 12 months, the Board looks forward to

welcoming a new scholar, expanding an

exciting programme of activities and

continuing with fundraising success!

The Kate Zaks Memorial Prize

in Art History

The Kate Zaks Memorial Prize in Art

History was endowed by Greg and Viola

Zaks in memory of their daughter. This

memorial endowment was awarded for the

first time to the highest achieving Stage

Two student in the History & Philosophy of

Art (HPA) Programme in July 2012. The

recipient was Luke Carver, a Stage Two

single honours HPA student.

Following donor agreement, it is intended

to use part of the fund to help support

future work-based experience undertaken

by HPA and Art History students in their

final year at the University of Kent.

The SunGard Actuarial Prize

The SunGard Actuarial Prize was

started back in 2008 when Martin

Sarjeant, Head of Actuarial

Development at SunGard, kindly

agreed to donate £100 per year for five

years. This would be awarded to the

student with the best results in a

module that involved using PROPHET

software on the MSc Applied Actuarial

Science course.

PROPHET is the life insurance

industry’s leading actuarial software

package used by companies

worldwide for profit testing, valuation

and model office work. The University

of Kent has entered into an exclusive

arrangement with SunGard, a global

leader in providing software solutions

for financial services, which markets

this leading software.

As a result of this arrangement,

actuarial students at Kent can take

modules with access to this important

software. They learn basic and more

advanced applications, as well as

being introduced to other financial

models. They are taught how to analyse

and summarise data, develop a model

with an audit trail and also develop the

ability to apply the results.

Actuarial students at the University of

Kent have been using PROPHET since

2002 and the link with SunGard was

strengthened with the donation of the

SunGard Actuarial Prize which took

effect in 2008. As from 2012, the prize

has been extended.

Major new donations boost

University Art Collection

The University of Kent is grateful for a

number of donations from artists with

international reputations.

Pratt Contemporary donated an etching

and drypoint print by Ana Maria Pacheco

from her series Domestic Scenes (2000).

The fifth of a group of 10, the print draws

on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and

depicts the Wife of Bath. The artist’s

sculptural group Shadows of the

Wanderer was displayed in Studio 3

Gallery during the first five months of last

year and this remains the best-attended

exhibition since the gallery opened in

2010, with over 2000 visitors.

Michael Baldwin and Mel Ramsden, the

artists behind the Art & Language Group,

have donated a set of five silkscreen

prints entitled Maps to Indicate… (2002).

The series develops Art & Language’s

long-standing interest in the conventions

of mapping, playing with thematic,

proportional maps so that they represent

philosophical concepts rather than purely

social geographical representations. The

Art & Language installation Portraits and a

Dream was exhibited in Studio 3 Gallery

from 3 October to 16 December 2011.

Both works are on public display in the

School of Arts’ Jarman Building at the

University of Kent’s Canterbury campus

(open Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm).

“The University of Kent is very

grateful for these generous gifts,

which will complement the existing

strong body of work within our

Kent Print Collection.”

Ben Thomas, Curator, Studio 3 Gallery

In March 2012,

celebrated British

landscape artist

Frederick Cuming RA

(Honorary Graduate of

the University of Kent,)

kindly donated one of

his pictures to the

University’s Art Collection. The unveiling

of The Mysterious Landscape, was

performed by David Nightingale, Senior

Deputy Vice-Chancellor.

With an artistic career spanning 60 years,

Fred has become one of England’s bestloved

landscape painters. His work is

famous for the distinctive technique of

quickly layered colour resulting in a

sensitive and unique rendering of light

and mood, and his trademark palette –

indicative of the Camden School Group –

is refreshingly limited. The East Sussex

coastline, in particular the area around

Camber and Rye, has provided the

backdrop for much of Fred’s work.

Leading archaeological

foundation supports Heritage MA

The University is very grateful to the A G

Leventis Foundation for supporting an

innovative master’s degree in heritage

management. This is co-run by the

University of Kent and the Athens

University of Economics and Business.

The A G Leventis Foundation was

established in 1979, to fulfil the wishes of

the late Anastasios Leventis. It is active in

the restoration of a number of monuments

in Cyprus, Greece and wider south-

Visualising the late

antique city

Thanks to Pompeii, most people find it

easy to imagine the early Roman city.

But visualising these population centres

in later centuries remained a challenge

– until now.

This year a Leverhulme-funded

research project began in the Classics

and Archaeology faculty on ‘The

Visualisation of the Late Antique City’.

Directed by Dr Luke Lavan and

supported by Dr Ellen Swift, it aims over

a three-year period to recreate the

monumental atmosphere and everyday

life of Mediterranean cities in the period

300-650 AD.

This is roughly the era when the Roman

Empire became Christian, and during

which the great city of Constantinople

flowered. Our work has included a project

in Ostia, where the university's

excavations are now complete, and are

being written up with support from John

Beale and John Osborn.

Thanks to the generosity of Mr John

Beale, it has been possible to expand the

research team of doctoral students

working on this topic to six, bringing in

talented students from the UK, Ireland

and Albania. With this gift, we have been

able to expand our work to include a

study of secular public building and the

cultural life of domestic objects, and to

develop 3D computer reconstructions of

different ancient sites.

eastern Europe, as well as supporting

education in Hellenic culture.

The MA in Heritage Management course,

which was launched in September 2011,

is distinctive in offering postgraduates a

combination of archaeology and business

skills. It also offers the opportunity to be

part of a heritage project based in Eleusis,

near Athens, home of the most famous

mysteries of the antiquity.

“This exciting programme has been

specially designed to offer what we

think is a unique combination of

archaeology and business skills.”

Chancellor’s Fund

The University would like to record its

grateful thanks to the Chancellor, Sir

Robert Worcester, for establishing The

Chancellor’s Fund in 2007. The Fund is

now supporting a wide range of University

projects including music and awards,

academic scholarships and prizes to

students from a variety of schools.

“As I come to the conclusion of my sevenyear

term as Chancellor of the University

of Kent I can look back with pleasure and

pride to the development of the University

in all ways: excellence in research,

excellent teaching, and the expansion of

both the numbers and quality of our intake

of students and faculty. I have had the

pleasure of working with two fine Vice-

Chancellors both of whom have served

the University well. And not least, in the

income growth not just from the increases

in Government support but also from

personal and corporate support. The

University is one of the largest employers

in the County of Kent. Its graduates fan

out across the world and make impacts

wherever they go.

For this reason I have set up a Chancellor’s

Fund, established to enable myself and my

successors to put money wherever the

Chancellors believe at the time it would be

most useful. There are several small grants

such as to the outstanding undergraduate

at Durrell Institute for Conservation and

Ecology (DICE) and to students from

Trinidad, some support for research and

some for equipment. I will be leaving

behind as I go a modest pool to be

passed on to the next Chancellor in the

hope that he or indeed she might develop

it further. In the meantime I would ask all

those generous benefactors we have and

others who might become benefactors to

consider joining me in support of the

Chancellor’s Fund”.

New Project for Philanthropy


An update of a seminal study on ‘Why Rich

People Give’ is to be funded by the Pears

Foundation and an anonymous donor. The

project will be a collaboration between the

University of Kent’s Centre for the Study of

Philanthropy, Humanitarianism and Social

Justice and leading philanthropy

consultant and author Theresa Lloyd.

Much has changed since the original

report, based on data collected in 2002,

provided the first credible study of

philanthropic behaviour and attitudes of

wealthier donors in the UK. This created

an opportunity to revisit the research on

the 10th anniversary of the data collection,

to review and update the findings and

narrative and create another significant

publication that will become the ‘must

read’ for the next decade.

The book, which we aim to publish in

the summer of 2013, will present new

research in the context of the global

philanthropic marketplace, including

developments in Europe, North America

and emerging markets. It will also include

a discussion of the state of philanthropy

today, what might happen over the next

decade and recommendations for what

should happen next to promote

philanthropy in the UK.

Dr Beth Breeze welcomes any input from

readers of the Donor Report. She can be

Patricia Collen Fellowship

Patricia Collen lived the majority of her life

within Normansfield Hospital, an institution

for people with learning disabilities in the

United Kingdom (now closed). In

recognition of her experiences, it was her

family’s wish that funding from her estate

be used to develop early intervention

initiatives to support young people with

intellectual disability and complex needs.

To this end, Dr Nick Gore has been

awarded fellowship funding from Patricia’s

estate for a three-year period, during

which he will be co-ordinating the Early-

Positive Approaches to Support (E-PAtS)

project. By providing specialised earlyyears

support for children with learning or

developmental disabilities, the E-PAtS

project aims to prevent the development of

challenging behaviour and minimize its

negative impact on children and families.

Drawing on best-practice techniques and

the experiences of professionals and family

members, the project will ensure that

lessons learned are embedded in systems

and processes going forward. In this way,

we can provide a lasting legacy for Patricia.

Paul Dyer Leadership Challenge

Having founded and managed Towergate

Partnership, a company with 5,500

employees, University of Kent alumnus

Paul Dyer is very familiar with the traits

required to be a successful leader. And to

help University of Kent students develop

the skills they need to become leaders of

the future, he introduced the Paul Dyer

Leadership Challenge.

This annual event is a unique opportunity

for students to enhance their employability

by learning about leadership, applying

that learning through a series of

challenges, receiving supportive coaching

and reflecting on the experiences as a

group. Participant feedback indicates that

the experience is a “life-changer”, giving

students the confidence to step into the

world of work and realise their potential.

All participants were awarded with

certificates of achievement and a signed

copy of Paul’s latest book, ‘Panic, Passion

and Power, Lessons from a Management

Journey’. In addition, places on a

weekend expedition preparation

programme in the Brecon Beacons

National Park were awarded to Daniel

McGrath for Personal Achievement and to

Constandinos Siafakas for Contribution to

the Paul Dyer Leadership Challenge.

“The Challenge has been a

fantastic opportunity for our

students to practice and develop

their leadership skills in real-life

situations. We are very grateful

to Paul for his generous donation

that has enabled us to introduce

the Challenge at Kent. We are

planning to extend the Challenge

to a wider group next year so that

even more students can take part

and enhance their employability.”

Professor Katie Truss, Head of Kent

Business School at Medway

Learning essential employment


Alumni and friends of the University

contribute in many ways beyond financial

help. Your time, skills and expertise are

also invaluable.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank

all of those individuals and organisations

that enhance the learning experience of

our students through their involvement.

This may be through providing work

placements, internships or training

opportunities. Or it may be through hosting

events, or providing valuable careers

advice to students or recent graduates

taking their first steps in the working world.

We are also grateful to all those who take

part in industry collaboration initiatives

such as the School of Engineering and

Digital Arts’ Industrial Panel. This is a forum

where the University can engage with

industry partners to gain insight and

ensure that teaching is aligned with the

needs of businesses.

This support provides a tangible

advantage for our students as they join

today’s competitive jobs market. Our

success in in this area is backed up by

the high levels of graduate employment

enjoyed by our students.

Recent partnerships include a venture

with Cisco Systems Inc in San Jose. The

company provides 12-month work

placement opportunities to outstanding

students from the School of Computing.

From an initial intake of four in the 2011/12

academic year, the programme has rapidly

grown to offer placements to 20 individuals

in 2012/13, due to the impressive nature

of the students and their work.

Closer to home, Enterprise Rent-A-Car

has supported students from Kent

Business School for several years. As well

as providing an annual scholarship and

prizes, the company also offers work

placement opportunities, and runs regular

skills seminars to give students essential

tools to help them secure employment.

Julia Mansi (E08) recently took

advantage of two day’s work experience

offered by Stephen Cates (K87), Partner

at Laytons Solicitors.

“The two days I spent with the

employment team at Laytons Solicitors

were both interesting and very enjoyable.

The team was immediately welcoming

and approachable which made it a great

atmosphere to work in. I was constantly

encouraged to ask questions and read

case files to gain an understanding of

the work undertaken by the team.

The team assigned me both legal

research and document preparation,

which gave me exposure to the firm’s

document review systems and

resources. I was also invited to attend

teleconferences and meetings with clients,

as well as the firm’s weekly business

development meeting.

The whole experience gave me a practical

insight into the day-to-day running of a

successful national law firm, and more

importantly, the role of a commercial

solicitor in the heart of the City of London.”

We would like to thank Stephen for offering

this opportunity. If you too can offer work

experience of any length to our current

students or recent graduates, we would

love to hear from you!

Young Alumni Fundraising Group

Established in 2011 to raise funds for the

Kent Law Campaign, the Young Alumni

Fundraising Group is made up of recent

graduates and current students from Kent

Law School. The Group has set a target of

£25,000 to be raised by September 2014.

So far, £5,000 has been raised through a

variety of initiatives and the University has

agreed to match each donation received

pound for pound.

Other recent fundraising activities have

included running the London marathon,

a sponsored skydive, a sponsored walk

from Canterbury to Whitstable, a comedy

night in London, and a quiz on campus.

In addition, charity greetings cards were

kindly printed free of charge by Cards

Made Easy and London Road Press Ltd

and raised £1,283 for the Kent Law


The University would like to thank them for

their generosity as well as the following

businesses for their support of this group:

• Downlands Cycles, Canterbury

• Patisserie, Canterbury

• Pilgrims Hotel, Canterbury

• Café du Soleil, Canterbury

• Pizza Express, Canterbury

• Maypole Marquees Ltd, Canterbury

Former Staff Association

The University of Kent Former Staff

Association was established in 2008 to

provide opportunities for former members of

staff to stay connected with the University

and with each other. An elected Liaison

Group organises monthly lunches, lectures,

visits to art galleries and concerts, and was

recently welcomed to the Chancellor’s home

at Allington Castle, near Maidstone.

The Former Staff Association has taken

an active role in fundraising for the Colyer-

Fergusson Music Building, and has raised

almost £2,400 from a variety of activities

including summer choral workshops. Many

members of the Association have also

donated towards the project in their own

right, and the University would like to record

its thanks to all members of the Former

Staff Association for their commitment to

supporting Kent.

First 500 Fund

The First 500, Kent’s first cohort of

undergraduates in 1965, has a very special

relationship with the University. Its members

hold an annual dinner in London, which is

also attended by staff from the University.

These pioneering alumni have established

the First 500 Fund to preserve something

of the spirit and advantage of their years

as Kent students. First 500 members

aim to provide future students with the

opportunities they enjoyed – the freedom

to think and challenge, the opportunity to

innovate and create, and the chance to start

working life without debt. The Fund plans to

establish a scholarship to commemorate the

University’s 50th Anniversary in 2015.

The First 500 Fund has already received a

number of generous donations, with over

£32,000 raised in the last academic year.

The University would like to record its

sincerest thanks to First 500 members

for their continued support.

Remembering the University of

Kent in your will

An increasingly popular way to support the

University of Kent is by pledging a gift in

your will. No matter how small or large, a

legacy gift can be transformational,

affecting the lives of generations of

students to come. It is a way of impacting

on people’s lives beyond our own, in a way

that is important to us.

Not all legacy gifts are directed towards

scholarships, many are open and some

are aimed at improving student facilities

and areas of teaching and learning.

If you have told us of your intention to

remember the University of Kent in your

will, we thank you and look forward to

seeing you at a legacy dinner.

“Not only was the scholarship a

huge confidence boost at an early

stage in my research, but it also

funded a trip to the United States

that took my work in new


Michelle Ulyatt, recipient of the Christine

and Ian Bolt Scholarship

“I spent my life teaching and know

how difficult it is for some students

to afford higher education. I would

hope that my donation will give

someone a helping hand to achieve

their goals too.”

Stella Dick, legacy donor

“I realise how difficult decisions are

for young people – whether to study

for a degree and how to fund it

when there is uncertainty about

graduate jobs.”

Dr David Nunnerley, legacy donor

“Today’s financial burden must

be really tough for people trying to

get to university. The University

of Kent had confidence in me at a

time when that was missing

elsewhere in my life and I would

like to repay that trust.”

DONOR REPORT 2011/2012

Thank you

A message from Dr Samuel

Godfrey, Kent Alumni

Scholar 2007-2011

In 2007, I was awarded the

Kent Alumni scholarship

which funded my studies

towards a PhD in cancer

research. I am hugely

grateful to all of you who

were kind enough to donate

to the University, because

without your donations I

could not have afforded to

work towards my doctorate

on a subject that I feel

passionate about.

I originally graduated from

Kent in 2005 with a BSc in

biomedical science. My

experiences at Kent had been

incredibly positive and, after

two years of enjoyable work

developing new medicines

with Pfizer, I had the

opportunity to return to this

university. I was also lucky

enough to win a scholarship

to further my studies.

The Kent Alumni

Scholarship not only paid

for my tuition fees and

laboratory fees, it also

covered my living expenses.

This allowed me to focus all

my energies on my PhD

without the need for a parttime

job to support myself.

The scholarship also provided

me with a wealth of nonacademic

opportunities. My

position as Alumni Scholar led

me to become an ambassador

for the university at numerous

receptions, garden parties, and

functions. In the process, I

have been able to thank many

donors personally for their

generous contributions. In this

role, I also visited many local

schools, explaining my research

and attempting to infuse

students with a passion for

pursuing a career in science.

Last year, I successfully

defended my thesis to be

awarded my doctorate. I have

now taken the experience I

gained at Kent to work at

Imperial College in London

with the Royal British Legion

on new methods for helping

damaged nerves repair

themselves. This is particularly

an issue with victims of

conflict, but also has

applications in paralysis,

Alzheimer’s disease and

traumatic brain injury.

Without your kind donations, I

could not have progressed to

this exciting point in my career

and I cannot express how truly

grateful I am. Thank you.

Dr Samuel Godfrey
