The success of the Women of the Future Appeal will be celebrated with a special fundraising dinner at Wivenhoe House hotel on Wednesday 14 December hosted by television presenter and writer Sandi Toksvig.

Launched in June 2015 to raise £500,000 to support 25 Masters scholarships for women from around the world to study at Essex, the Appeal has surpassed its target thanks to the enthusiastic support of the University community and the wider public. This means even more women can be supported through scholarships.

The Celebration Dinner, which is being hosted by Sandi Toksvig, will close the appeal. The evening will feature an auction with items donated by our Honorary Graduates and local businesses including a selection of David Dimbleby’s Question Time ties, luxury hotel stays and a free dive with a world champion free diver.

The evening is a chance to bring together donors to the Appeal, local business representatives and members of the University and local community.

All proceeds from tickets sales and the auction will be matched by the University.

Booking is open to everyone to book tickets go to:
