Earlier in the year, we opened applications but who were the lucky ones to get the funding?

23 April 2013 - 2:02 pm Love gunge? Hate linguists? Gunge a linguist!

I’m obviously joking around, here – linguists are great, but who doesn’t love the opportunity to throw gunge all over someone?

The School of English is running an event where you can witness exactly that. The event will raise money for the Enactus HOPE Nigeria project, which aims to support sex trafficked women in Nigeria by giving them the chance to rebuild their lives through enterprise, and there are a couple of ways you can lend a hand.

Think of the things we could do, the things we’d learn and the people we would meet? Think of the impact we could have, on our community, our environment,  ourselves. You still with me? Good, because, sadly, she can’t have the funding, but you can.
