Craft Fair 2013

The Kent Law Campaign Student Committee held another event which was a Craft Fair just in time for Christmas held in Woolf Foyer on Monday 11th November 2013!

It was smaller than the Fun Run the week before but still lots of fun! We invited 9 local artisans to come along and sell their crafts, including jewellery, knitting and home ware design which made great Christmas gifts. There was even a fudge stall, homemade cupcakes and complimentary tea and biscuits much to the delight of everyone who came along!

Some of the artisans were kind enough to offer their time to host workshops so they could teach their crafts. They included a lampshade making workshop and a jewellery making class. They were both very popular and enjoyed by all who took part! The night was very chilled out and allowed for relaxed browsing, which was complimented by Clarins’ offering free hand massages.

The night was extremely successful and raised an amazing £420.44 for the Kent Law Campaign including the University’s match.

Campaign Love!

Fun Run 2013

The Kent Law Campaign Student Group held their first big-scale event, 5km Fun Run, on the 3rd of November, 2013.

Over 100 people joining the event, the runners followed the 5km route along the campus in the name of ‘Race for Justice’. The race was started by his honour Judge Nigel Van der Bijl, the honorary recorder of Canterbury. At the end of the event Ross Braden and Melissa Spurling were awarded for the first male and the first female to finish the race.

This event was also supported by some amazing fellow societies from the University of Kent. While the registration and preparation were going on, members of the Magic Society were present to entertain our runners and volunteers. Their fabulous tricks definitely helped to bring a rather relaxing and calm atmosphere. During the run, the Pirate Society members were chasing after our runners and motivated them to finish the race – everyone loved them! After the race finished, the amazing Taekwondo Society had a demonstration session and captured everyone’s eyes.

Our very own Chair, Emily, said “I am so proud of what the student committee has achieved for our first big fundraising event. We always knew it was going to be a challenge but I’m so pleased that we were able to work together with the Campaigns Office and volunteers to produce a truly memorable day. We’ve had great feedback from everyone involved and hope to repeat the success next year to raise more money for such a worthwhile cause.”

Thanks to everyone’s support, the Kent Law Campaign Student Group was able to raise over £3,000 for the Campaign.
