1.1 ‘#Heretohelpyou... change the world’: The #Heretohelpyou... change the world campaign launched last week in which we ask students to donate a range of goods for helping people who are homeless within Oxford. This is being done in partnership with Oxford Homeless Pathways (Charity No: 297806) who O’Hanlon House in Luther Street.
We’re asking students (and staff) to donate goods ranging from (new) toiletries, warm clothing, towels etc., which can deposited at either the Union (in the Glass bowl), the Enquiry Centre at Gipsy Lane, Westminster Square at Harcourt Hill and the reception at Wheatley. The Enquiry Centre has also agreed to donate the clothing from lost property at the end of semester as well.
RAG have kindly agreed to help me logistically by bringing donations from Harcourt Hill or Wheatley campus to Helena Kennedy for centralised storage until they can be donated on the 24th December.
1.2 JHBB SU Bar: JHBB SU Bar: The SU Bar in JHBB currently no longer has plans to incorporate food due to having a small kitchen. This is counter to previous discussions and guidance in food panels. It is currently unknown if (or when) the SU bar will include food on the menu.
Grab&Go: Due to the success of the Urban Eats (gluten free) rolls at Gipsy Lane, they have been rolled out at Helena Kennedy Grab&Go as well.
