Charities - Damian Walsh
Email: charities (@thejcr.co.uk)
Hi, I'm Damian, a second year studying English and I'm this year's Charities Officer.
My main role is to organise and coordinate charitable work throughout the college, and make sure that charity is a visible part of college life. Each year, the undergraduate student body at Christ's elects three charities to support: one local, one national, and one international. As Charities Officer it is my job to arrange events to support and fundraise for the organisations selected. Additionally, I work to publicise and help other charitable initiatives occurring throughout Cambridge – in particular, I liaise closely with Cambridge RAG (Raising and Giving), the university-wide body which runs many fundraising events throughout the year.
I'm always keen to put new events on the Charities calendar, or to help out with existing fundraising campaigns. If you're in any way interested in getting involved with volunteering, feel there is a cause that Christ's should be supporting, or want to run an event to support any charity at all then get in touch and I will try to help facilitate it or give advice. There's loads going on so it'd be great to have as many people involved as possible – send me an email or a message about anything and I'll do my best to help!
