    “As an alumnus of UWL, I have a lot to be grateful for. My time there set me up for the rest of my life and helped shape me, both academically and personally. Now that I'm able to give back I feel it's important to help in any tangible way possible; whether that's with my time, or with financial support. I know that the donations I made through the Future Campus project were put to the best possible use – to further enhance the overall student experience and the quality of learning at UWL. It's been both rewarding and exciting to be a small part of the growth of UWL – and long may that continue!”

    “Thames Valley University was a great place to study. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people at each module and travelling to the different sites in Ealing, Slough and Reading. My favourite memories were of mixing with all age groups as I love to do now. We all had a common purpose. I chose to give back to the University through the Take a Seat appeal because I want students to have the same advantages as I was lucky enough to have had. I would love to feel that students do not end up in debt after working hard and that I can, in some way, encourage their development and future work. It’s never too late to learn and to follow your dreams.”

    Mollie Clay Trust

    In 2015, the Mollie Clay Trust gave a generous gift to name a room in the University’s new Paul Hamlyn Library. The room bears the name of the late Edith Mary Royds Clay (known as Mollie among friends), a great humanist and volunteer. The gift is a continuation of the Trustees’ long standing support of the University. Over the years, the Trustees have generously donated to scholarships, bursaries and prizes for talented and bright students. Mollie’s links with the University date back to the 1960s when she worked as an honorary secretary to the Ealing Overseas Students Committee at Ealing Technical College (now part of the University of West London).

    “Ealing Technical College provided everything I wanted in terms of the course. We had inspiring teachers, and the passion and practicality with which they delivered and shared their knowledge meant that, for me, the seed was well and truly sown for my career in catering. I always feel that the University is never above itself; it puts the needs of its students first. The recent investment in the new buildings and facilities is testament to that. My involvement in the Alumni Board, and as a donor through the Take a Seat appeal, has allowed me to give something back and make sure there is a connection for a life time and all the benefits that this brings.”

    Dr Barry wrote of his part a few years before his death: “As a donor my relationship with the University of West London has been very rewarding as I have always felt that my gifts have reached the right people and made a real difference to the lives of so many.”

    “We are so pleased and feel so fortunate that, through our work, we can be actively involved in students’ pursuit of their dreams and aspirations. Our work is about supporting those who would otherwise be unable to continue with their chosen studies, so that their talents and potentials will not be wasted.”
