Summer opportunity with a children’s charity

Lauriston Lights targets high-ability 11 year-old children from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. This demographic receives very little specific support from the government, so it’s up to voluntary organisations to help them hone their abilities. Over a two-week summer camp, with your help, these children find the confidence and skills needed to let them thrive in secondary school and beyond. 

The camps are entirely operated by current university undergraduates, on a voluntary basis, and approximately 40-50 mentors are needed to volunteer this August in London and Oxford. The final deadline is Friday 24th March.

More info can be found HERE, a promotional video can be found HERE and the application form can be found HERE

1.2 billion people live
on less than £1 a day.

 

You can help change this.

 

Join in on the Live Below
the Line challenge to spend £1 on food and drink for 5 days from March
6th-10th. Live Below the Line raises vital funds and attention for the 1.2
billion people who live on £1 a day, every day – not just for food and drink,
but for everything. By taking the Live Below the Line challenge, it will
change the way you understand and think about extreme poverty. It gets people
talking and creates passionate people, willing and able to make a difference
for those who need it most. We will be raising money for Tearfund, a charity
working to help people lift their lives out of destitution.

 

Check out the facebook event here for more information

 

There will be some communal meals
throughout the week and the information will all be on the Facebook event,
including ideas for what you can eat for £1 a day.

Dirty
Hands is an existential, political and comedic drama play that tells the story
in flashback of the assassination of Turnbull, a rising star on the right of
the Post-Brexit Labour Party. Hugo, fresh from prison, visits his former boss,
Monica, and in an attempt to prevent Hugo from being ‘eliminated’ by party
members angered by his indiscretions, she must decide whether he is redeemable
for the cause before midnight. As the play progresses, we see Hugo’s internal
struggles and self-doubt emerge; if he abandons his task he will be killed, but
if he murders Turnbull will he lose his integrity?
