The Cambridge University Save the Children society works to fundraise for and raise awareness of the global Save the Children charity, to support its humanitarian work across 120 countries. Save the Children works to combat childhood poverty and disease, protect children’s rights and provide access to education. Find out more here: http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/about-us. In previous years, our fundraising activities have consisted of bake sales, college-wide doughnut speed-eating competitions, blind dates, street collections and more. Last Michaelmas term, fundraising was focused on supporting the Syria Appeal, supplying emergency aid to the 6.8 million people displaced and in need of help as a result of civil war. A total of £550 was raised in those 8 weeks, and this money has gone twice as far, due to the UK government’s pledge to match every pound donated via NGOs such as Save the Children. If you are interested in getting involved in a few of our events or keen to take on a more organisational role as part of our committee, we’d love to hear from you! Chair: Ciju Puthupally.
Committee members from Christ’s college : Isabel Wilkinson (iw248) and Nunu Tao (nmt26) (Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org)
