The Master's Founders' Speech 2020
Choir collection - Singing for Syrians

Ordinarily we’d have enjoyed our traditional Carole Service in Pusey Chapel, but of course, sadly this could not take place. At this event each year there is always a charitable collection, and despite the Service not going ahead, we’d still like to give our members the opportunity to contribute to this collection. Once again, the chosen charity is Singing for Syrians. This campaign, run by the Hands Up Foundation since 2014, raises money for some of Syria's most vulnerable people - projects funded include paying wages for doctors in the Aleppo region, funding a prosthetic limb clinic and medical training programmes. To make a donation, please use the following details to make a bank transfer and the College will channel your gift to the campaign.
