Xu Zhimo pens raise funds for international students

A percentage of the sales of the Onoto-made pens helps support international graduate students at King's.

We are pleased to report that we have received just under £1,000 to date to support international graduate students at King’s thanks to our partnership with Onoto. A percentage of the sales income, from the Xu Zhimo range of pens, will continue to be donated by Onoto to establish a Xu Zhimo Studentship Fund in memory of the famous Chinese poet  who wrote ‘Second Farewell to Cambridge’ after his year of study at King’s College, Cambridge in 1921.

The pens are available from the Onoto website and the Shop at King’s in Cambridge.
