London Group

The Somerville London Group is primarily focused on bringing together Somerville alumni of all ages and interests who can come to our events in London, and secondarily on fundraising for the College. We do charge for every event, setting the price at a level which covers our costs and provides a small surplus for the College. At the committee's AGM we donate the annual surplus to the Somerville Annual Fund. The Group donated:

£3,552.00 in 2017
£3,121.43 in 2016
£4,904.85 in 2015
£2,500.00 in 2014
£3,500.00 in 2013
£3,449.72 in 2012
£3,070.00 in 2011
£3,000.00 in 2010
