Telephone Campaign

In February, we host our annual telephone campaign in support of the Forever Surrey Fund, which provides crucial help across the University.

Our friendly team of student callers are excited to speak with alumni, share the latest Surrey news and discuss how you can stay involved with the Forever Surrey community. Thanks to the 350 people who supported last year’s campaign, we were able to support more students than ever before.

This year’s campaign will be taking place from Monday 21 February until Sunday 20 March 2022. We thank you in advance for taking the time to support Surrey and to speak to some of our current students!
