Our 2021 Telephone Campaign will be running from Saturday, 11th September to Thursday, 23rd September.
Below you can see information on our student callers, who will be reaching out to alumni from the UK & the US. Their aim is three-fold, to catch up with alumni about developments in their/your lives; to update alumni on College life, both under COVID-19 lockdown and more generally; and to raise money for the College as it works to preserve and enhance the student experience in these very challenging times.
Wherever you are in the world, if you feel able to donate to support St Edmund’s you can do so via this website. You can also reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org about ways in which you might be able to help your alma mater.
Our Student Caller Team
Luke Coakham (Medicine)
Hi there, my name is Luke and I have just finished my first year on the graduate medical programme at St Edmund’s. I grew up in Wales, and in my free time, I love running, and recently ran my first marathon. I also row for the Eddies team and play guitar.
Without the financial support of the College this year, I would have been unable to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor so I am extremely grateful for their support. This is why I felt so strongly about becoming a telephone fundraiser this year, to help other students like myself in the future.
Elaine Wing Wong (Social Anthropology)
Hello this is Sze Wing Wong (Elaine) from Hong Kong. I’ve stayed at Cambridge since 2020 doing an MPhil in Social Anthropology.
In my spare time, I like checking out museums, galleries, and bookstores, and having relaxed walks with friends around the campus sipping a nice cup of coffee.
Levente Koroes (HSPS)
I’m Levente, a third year undergraduate student reading Human, Social and Political Sciences. I studied in Central Europe and Australia before coming to Eddie’s, where I have truly found my home. When not reading about politics, sociology or psychology, you will either find me running, sipping tea or behind my camera.
I am an active member of the CR and the college community as a whole, and I acted as the Vice-President of the May Ball Committee. Though my time in Cambridge has been different to most other first-years, I am very happy to be here and partake in the phone campaign, as I would like to show appreciation for this amazing college and its community.
