Could you help others have a life-changing learning journey at Sarum?

Sarum College’s programmes, people and historic buildings continue to thrive thanks to the involvement and generosity of our friends and donors.

I was privileged to spend three years at Sarum College studying for an MA in Theology, Imagination and Culture, an experience which turned out to be life-changing. The learning, culture and fellowship were for me nothing short of transformational.

I now see a wider picture of lots of individual journeys that coalesce into a culture that nourishes the human spirit well beyond the College walls. To celebrate and preserve this for the benefit of generations to come, I have made provision to Sarum College in my will.

My bequest is of course only one gift, and I am not rich by any means. But if others followed suit, however modestly, together they would represent one generation helping to sustain Sarum College’s work for the next.
