The PLG & The 1347 Committee
The College believes that it is important for students to be involved with the work of the Development Office, whether as ambassadors via the 1347 Committee or as fundraisers as a member of the Pembroke Leavers’ Group or as a caller on the annual Telephone Fundraising Campaign.
The 1347 Committee
The 1347 Committee has existed since 1995 and comprises Junior Members, from all years, who help the Development Office at alumni events but also organise the annual 1347 Committee Parents’ Lunch in April and the Pembroke Mile in March. Money raised by the lunch is directed towards Student Support and the 1347 Committee have raised over £250,000 over the last 15 years.
The Pembroke Leavers’ Group
Established in 1998 by Howard Raingold as the 100% Club, the Pembroke Leavers’ Group (PLG) is a student-run body founded in 2000, which raises money from finalists for specific student-focused college funds. This year the PLG Committee concentrated on raising money to fund a number of £1,000 ‘2012 Bursaries’.
