A special thank you event will be held today, Friday 13 November, for supporters of Oxford Brookes University.

The event will also provide an early view of ‘Brookes because’, the new strategy that has been developed to encourage support for Oxford Brookes.

This new case for support provides a wide range of opportunities for supporters to donate or get involved in some other way in the life of the University. This includes supporting scholarships and bursaries; offering time and expertise; providing development opportunities for our students through mentoring, work placements or volunteering; and donations towards our world-leading research in health, environment, technology and humanity.

Whether through financial gifts or offering time and expertise, the help we receive has been, and will continue to be, vital to our success.

Vice Chancellor Professor Alistair Fitt

Professor Alistair Fitt said, "Oxford Brookes is very successful and this is in no small part due to our supporters. Whether through financial gifts or offering time and expertise, the help we receive has been, and will continue to be, vital to our success."

Friends and past donors of the University have been invited to attend a special event at the Headington Campus to receive thanks for their valued and continued support.

This event will form part of the Brookes Live which is taking place at Oxford Brookes this evening. Brookes Live will bring pioneering research, live performances and interactive activities from across the University together for an evening of family-friendly fun.
