The Wellington Community exists to inspire and support the students as well as being a wonderful social and professional network for all its members.

OUR COMMUNITY

Join us

We estimate that there are over 28,000 members within our Community across the world – the challenge is how do we bring this network together to support the students, as well as being a wonderful social and professional network for all its members? The answer is Wellington Connect – our own online platform that will provide opportunities for all members; re-connecting with former classmates, making new connections, finding jobs and signing up to a rich and varied programme of events and activities.

OUR PROGRAMMES

Opportunities to get involved

Strictly For Grace

6.45pm - 12.00am, Dining Hall, Wellington College

 

Every year in the UK 20,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. This is 54 women a day and 21 of these women will die. GRACE supports women with gynaecological cancers by raising awareness, funding research and providing local hospitals with vital equipment.

 

In order to help raise money for this incredible charity, former staff dance teacher Pandy Dean will be hosting an evening of glitz, glamour and ballroom dancing as our very own Wellington College staff members take to the dance floor for a Strictly Come Dancing extravaganza!

 

There will be VIP guest-judges and Murray Lindo (Head of the Wellington Community) will be leading us through the evening as MC. There will be fizz on arrival, followed by a sit-down two course meal. The dancing competition will take place after the meal, and once the winning couple have been announced, all are invited to dance the night away with our 13-piece band! There will be a cash bar on site.

 

Tickets cost £100 per person, or why not buy a table of 10 for £1,000. All profits go to the charity GRACE. Tickets include glass of fizz, 2-course meal, half a bottle of wine and of course live entertainment!
