Making a difference: why we need your support

For over 800 years, Cambridge has been changing the world. Since 1885 Hughes Hall has been a part of that story, and today Hughesians are playing their part in a huge variety of disciplines, from medicine and law to education and engineering. To our 600 strong international student body, we are a home, a support, and a community.

Our students and researchers are pushing the frontiers of scientific research into life threatening diseases, finding ways to help protect fragile ecosystems and developing new technologies that will improve the quality of people’s lives.

Whether you donate time, funds or expertise, your philanthropy helps us to make a difference.

Richard Berg Rust

We have been amazed and gratified by the coming together of Hughes and the wider Cambridge community in reaction to Richard’s passing. We have discussed with his family how we can establish a permanent reminder of our feelings and we now have two new initiatives to ensure his special interest areas are recognised at Hughes. 

Richard had many interests but two of his core passions were Sport  and the heritage and culture of the North East.  With this in mind we have decided to raise funds for:

 

A “Heavyweight” Hughes Boat

 

 

A Lecture Series on Literature from the North of England

 

 

 Legacies  

More information about legacies to the College can be found here.
