Following the success of 2013, UCBC are organising another 24hr Ergathon (a 24hr relay on the indoor rowing machines) to raise money for Shelter and UCBC. All money raised will be split 50/50 between the two organisations.
Shelter is a housing and homelessness charity who give practical housing advice and support to people struggling with bad housing or homelessness. Last year they answered over 128,000 calls for help, gave over 65,000 people advice and support through face-to-face services and had over 4 million people visit their advice pages online. In Oxford alone thousands of people every year are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless, and this figure is likely to rise as Oxford becomes increasingly the most unaffordable place in England to live.
UCBC is the largest club at Univ, with over 100 members. There are continual costs and expenses, as well as capital costs of new equipment. Many people give up their time and energy to allow the club to continue, and we would really appreciate any support that you can give.
