Have you noticed Old Joe's new accessory?


This week, we are recognising the impact that giving has made across our university through donations for buildings, scholarships, and research.

Old Joe was built thanks to one of the founding gifts received by the University, and colleagues from the Development, Alumni and Business Engagement office have tied gift bows on him, created by a member of the team, to celebrate.

The clock tower itself was built thanks to early gifts to the University. Today, donors to the Circles of Influence campaign give charitable support to enable research into deadly diseases, provide scholarships for disadvantaged students, and support the world leading research of our academics. Circles of Influence is on track to exceed an ambitious target of £160 million, making it the largest fundraising campaign ever in the region.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign so far, there is still time to join the University's 10,000 supporters and help make a difference.
