I decided to join the Lincoln Telethon Team after members of the alumni kindly covered the cost of our belated half-way hall celebrations in Trinity. Their message was one of solidarity with the Lincolnites whose term had been widely disrupted due to Coronavirus. I was fortunate enough to attend the one dinner that managed to go ahead and experienced first-hand how greatly the alumni’s generosity was appreciated. It was the highlight of the term. The fact that the alumni wanted us to enjoy ourselves was particularly touching and the gesture felt almost like a conspiratorial wink between students past and present in the name of fun. I look forward to thanking the alumni for their continued support and in particular for that very special evening. I also look forward to speaking with ex-students who have gone onto successful and interesting careers about their time at Lincoln and beyond.
