ABOUT

ABOUT

MWA, RAG, and the May Ball Presidents’ Committee are teaming up to put on "THE MAY WEEK MEGA EVENT" - an online celebration of May Week to unite the Cambridge community to mark the end of a tough year in style. 

 

On Sunday 28th June we will be streaming a jam-packed evening of entertainment, bringing together musicians, performers and much more from across Cambridge and beyond.

May Week Alternative

MWA is a student-run charity movement encouraging students to celebrate the end of the academic year while making the world a better place. We invite students to donate an amount significant to them to charity, and then put on a Summer Party during May Week to celebrate the impact of the donations. This year alone, Cambridge students have raised over £100,000 for the Against Malaria Foundation through joining MWA.

RAG

Cambridge RAG is the University’s largest student-led organisation. We support a number of local, national and international charities every year, raising tens of thousands of pounds! Our fundraising events and activities range from Blind Date - which saw 2000 people take part in 2020, to Jailbreak - where participants have reached as far as South America in previous years to more local events like our weekly bucket collections. We are excited to be partnering with MWA and MBPC for the Mega Event to contribute to efforts supporting individuals and organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

May Ball Presidents' Committee

The May Ball Presidents' Committee convenes all May Ball and June Event Presidents from across Cambridge and aims to increase collaboration between the Cambridge Events, particularly in logistical support, charitable fundraising and sustainability initiatives.

 

GET INVOLVED

GET INVOLVED

Are you a singer-songwriter? Has quarantine left you with excess creativity? We are running a competition to feature the best songs relating to your Cambridge experience - anything from witty parodies to nostalgic laments. Submit your entry below to be in with a chance to feature!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31/05/2020

Do you have a talent? Are you a performer? It could be the Jazz band you assembled before lockdown, or perhaps juggling the three loaves of sourdough you baked last week. In between our main performers, we’ve got a number of 5 minute segments in which we want to feature Cambridge’s diversity of talent and creativity. Just submit your well-honed act or new idea below!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31/05/2020

We’re putting together a series of videos in collaboration with Kindbridge featuring Cambridge’s student life continuing in lockdown - from your friendship group's zoom pub quiz, to your faith group doing prayers remotely, to your recreation of a Wednesday Cindies on Houseparty. Did your society come up with the most innovative remote events? Did you have the best virtual formal, complete with gowns and wine? If so, we want to see it!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31/05/2020

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31/05/2020

If you’re part of a Uni sports team, we’d love for you to feature at the Mega Event doing the Big Night Spin challenge! The way it works is simple:

1. Introduce yourself and your team.

2. Spin around your sporting equipment 10 times (this could be a football, a tennis racket, a bike - whatever you use in your sport)!

3. Attempt to score a goal/hit a ball/do whatever you would normally do!

4. Film yourself so we can include you in our stream.

5. Submit your video below!

We want to capture the full variety of talents that Cambridge has to offer – no matter how niche or well-known – and we’re looking for you to help us. Whatever you’d like to contribute, however big or small, we’d love to hear from you!

OUR CHARITIES

OUR CHARITIES

We are partnering with The Big MAC campaign to raise money on the night for two Cambridge-based causes central to the fight against coronavirus and future pandemics: Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust and the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk.

Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust

Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) is raising money to help support staff and patients during this difficult time. Money donated to ACT will help tackle the here and now; funding psychological support for staff and patients in the ICU, iPads for patients to communicate with loved ones and the development of a new COVID-19 diagnostics test. Most importantly, all money donated to ACT goes above and beyond what the NHS would provide.

Centre for the Study of Existential Risk

CSER is a high impact research centre at the University of Cambridge which studies possible extinction-level threats, including pandemics. It has a track record of engaging with policy makers both nationally and internationally, including presenting research on pandemic preparedness in the UK Parliament and research on biological risk at the UN Biological Weapons Convention.

The Big MAC is a Cambridge-based student charity campaign encouraging students to donate a portion of their May Ball refunds. In under a month they have raised £24,000 for their two chosen charities. On the night, they will be running a text-to-donate appeal for the two charities to round off their campaign with a bang.
