1984 was a momentous year for the College, with the admission of women as undergraduates to Pembroke. The year is now coming together to stamp its influence on the Mill Lane project, by raising money to fund Café 84.
Situated in “Stuart House”, the old University careers service, Café 84 will be the social hub of the Mill Lane site. A place where students – and other members of the College – can go to relax and meet friends over a cup of coffee and a sandwich, or nip into a quieter area to read in peace and quiet.
The 1984 year group are aiming to raise £840,000, they only need to hit £210,000 to reach their target. Thanks to a generous matching donation from a member of the year, and the Dolby family matching £1 for £1 any donation made to the Mill Lane Project before the end of 2022, they are closing in on their target.
The year’s push is being led by Joanna Prior and Raymond Nasr, who are hoping that the year will hit their target by the time that work begins in Stuart House in September this year. All donors will have their name listed on a special board in the café.

Dolby Matching Funds
The family of Ray Dolby has pledged to match every £1 donated with another £1 until 2023. This means that if we can raise £16 million over the next four years, they will donate a further £16m, which will complete the funding for the Mill Lane redevelopment. We are naturally very grateful to them. Read More
