The John Milton Club

"What is strength without a double share of wisdom?"

John Milton (9 December 1608 – 8 November 1674), a poet, polemicist, and civil servant for the Commonwealth of England. Best known for his great epic poem Paradise Lost.

John Milton composed Paradise Lost after he became completely blind and relied entirely on assistance to transcribe it. The help that he was given allowed him to complete an achievement that was beyond him alone and this collective act is exactly why we think he is perfect for this giving club. The sum of the whole can be so much greater than the sum of the individual parts.

Donors who are members of the John Milton Club symbolise vision and wisdom.

In return we offer our thanks through:

Your donation can be made in one go, or annually or monthly over a period of up to four years. See more information in our giving table.

Milton said:

"I am a part of all that I have met."

The student experience at Nottingham Trent University can be a part of all that is given.
