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.
