This edition of your Old Joe magazine celebrates the
launch of the University’s 10,000 Lives appeal.
10,000 Lives has the ambitious aim of changing 10,000 young lives over
the next few years through the support of our donors and volunteers.
Below, our appeal ambassadors share how the University changes lives. With your
help we can reach thousands more young people like Brandon, Ioana,
Niamh and Hannah. Together we can raise aspirations in 11–25-year olds,
develop confident and employable students and support our young alumni
as they start their post-University life.
