Happy New Year

After the Christmas break and the excitement at the end of last term with a successful Narnia-themed Winter Ball, Hattie and I are looking forward to the new term.

Dates for your Diaries

We have events coming up specifically for the alumni community. On the 2nd of April our annual London reunion will take place. There will be a networking event during the day, encouraging current students to come and meet the Angels outside of Durham. In the evening there will be a dinner for Butler alumni. More information on the reunion will follow.


On the 4th of June Butler Day is the launch of the Tenth Year Anniversary. Our College day has been moved to a Saturday in an aim to ensure alumni can come up for the entire day. This Butler Day will be bigger and better than ever to kickstart celebrations.

Volunteer for Butler

Is your New Year’s resolution to get more involved in the College community? Well you are in luck. Josephine Butler is looking for alumni volunteers in several different areas.


Want to access that tempting recruitment bonus but don’t know how to start? Join Butler Angels to meet lots of students with no idea what they want to do after university.


If you have an aptitude for engaging with people through social media or just spend too much time on your Facebook feed, put this time to good use keeping alumni up to date on news from the alumni community.


If you live in London, Durham, Newcastle, Manchester or York apply to be an area volunteer. You can make sure that your area is represented in alumni events.

For more information or to volunteer email a.m.whitehouse@durham.ac.uk.
