The role of the Lincoln MCR Charities Team is to organise various social events for raising money to support a set of worldwide charities which are proposed and selected by the vote of MCR members at the beginning of each academic year.
The Charities team is composed of a Charities Representative who belongs to the MCR Committee and a group of volunteers from our MCR. Our action relies on regular popular events like the Charities Casino Night or the Charities Promise Auction, and we complement it with smaller initiatives like clothes collections for the benefit of local charities like Oxfam. We also co-organise special events with the Social team whose proceeds go to our supported Charities as well.
Charities are chosen during Michaelmas term. Proposals for charities opens following the first MCR General Meeting, in week 2. Voting for the proposed charities will take place during the final MCR General meeting, in Week 4.
