We are coming into week number three of Welfare Committee’s Take A Break Campaign. Do make sure to take some time off from work to unwind where you can. Welfare are providing lots of opportunities for a bit of time off to relax and have some social interaction so do check it out.
Everyone is super duper busy with exams at the moment and that includes your stellar exec, so this email is short and sweet, buuuuut it is also time to start looking forward to the post exams virtual events! Whilst it may feel a way off yet for those of you with exams and assessments you are so nearly there. Keep on reading to the end for post exams save the dates and some places where I need help from you guys!
🎉~~~~SOOO WHAT’S ON THIS WEEK?~~~~~🎉
Here are all of the details on this week’s events for Take A Break – best of all THE ALPACAS ARE BACK!
Welfare are also running heaps of drop ins all throughout the week.
Stash closes at midnight this Friday!
There are heaps of new designs – you don’t want to miss this!
You can order here: https://jbc.secure-decoration.com
Any questions just message Emily Dewar.
Stash will either be delivered to college as usual in a batch delivery. However, this will not be able to be collected or sent out until things go back to normal. OR you have the option to get it delivered to your home with an additional shipping charge.
Please check regular stash as well as graduate stash for graduate options! All designs should have the option to have “Durham University Graduate 2020” on the back! Also please show your parents/guardians/grandparents etc the stash, as I’m sure they may want some kind of mug or something to remember your pending graduation!
Please check out the instagram account for any guidance and real life images @josephine_butler_stash
If you have any pictures of stash please send them to Emily for the instagram.

I am busy planning away how I can best celebrate all of your incredible achievements this year! This is where I would love your help.

It can be you and your friends, your clubs, a great social, a match win, an amazing formal, an afternoon in the bar. The more the merrier!
This might seem cheesy but anyone who used to watch PresVlog, or frepped this year, will remember how amazing a feeling it was to look back on memories and achievements. I know this might seem cheesy but I hope it will be a nice keepsake from the year! (Please check with your pals/team mates that they are happy for these to be shared!)
