Everybody has their own way of giving back to society. Here at Christ’s we try to accommodate all tastes by putting on a diverse collection of fundraising events.
The predominant way to give is through the Charities Ballot that takes place at the beginning of Lent term. All of college is given the opportunity to give a small amount of money to three different charities that have been voted for by the undergraduate body. We choose a local, a national and an international charity.
This year we are supporting:
Aside from the ballot, there will be a variety of events throughout the year to support individual charities. There will be an opportunity for everyone to get involved. Please do suggest events or charities that you think should be supported in an event to the Charities Officer.
Outside of college, Cambridge RAG organises university-wide charity events. To find out more about their events and the latest appeals visit www.cambridgerag.org.uk for up-to-date information.
