CHARITY


In keeping with our general focus for the 2020 Ball being a celebration of Worcester and its community, the Committee has chosen to donate proceeds from the event to the Student Hardship Fund. This fund supports students encountering financial hardship by providing resources beyond the normal UK government’s student loan to ensure that students from all economic backgrounds can focus on their academic work without being adversely affected by their financial circumstances.


SolidariTEE x What's a pound?

What difference would an extra £1 make to the price of your ball ticket this year? Thousands of students a year attend balls and university events, if every attendee were to donate £1 to charity then huge amounts could be raised for some amazing causes. This year Worcester College Commemoration Ball invites you to add a modest optional £1 donation to your ticket price so that this incredible night can benefit others too.

The recipient of this year's "What's a pound?" scheme is SolidariTee, an entirely student-led charity that raises awareness about the refugee crisis and offers grants to organisations and individuals working in the sector. The asylum procedure is notoriously arduous and complicated, so SolidariTee choose to fund lawyers and legal advisers to tackle this humanitarian crisis in a sustainable and empowering way, allowing asylum seekers to leave the interminable legal limbo of refugee camps and start their new lives. All profits from the sale each beautifully designed t-shirt go towards funding their admirable cause.

To find out more about SolidariTee follow them on social media, and keep your eyes peeled on the Worcester College Commemoration Ball Facebook page for competitions and giveaways!
