My story

[p]Oxford International College will be running a charity online Read-a-thon on Saturday 25th April 2020 to support local charity Be Free YC. See our new campaign video [url=https://youtu.be/QFIaDbBIVAE]here[/url].[/p][p]This charity supports young carers, aged 8-24, in the Oxfordshire area. These young people are, for the most part, now in isolation as the family member they help care for is classed as ‘at risk’. This means, that in addition to all of the uncertainty we are all currently facing they have also lost many of the respite from their caring duties that they rely upon, such as school and social activities. We are hoping to raise money to get books and educational tools which can be included in the care packages that the charity is going to send out to its carers. [/p][p]Both students and staff members from all around the world will be taking part in this event! They will be asked to pledge one book to read on Saturday 25th April and will have 24 hours to read this book.[/p][p]We would be most grateful if you would support us and donate to this wonderful charity who are doing vitally important work during this difficult time.[/p][p]We will be sharing photos and videos of the event and the lead up so you can see what we are getting up to! See our first video [url=https://youtu.be/QFIaDbBIVAE]here[/url].[/p]
