Community Engagement Officer
For the past few years The Student Workshop has been working hard to establish a connection with the local schools in the area. The Student Workshop dedicate themselves to spreading Christmas cheer by visiting the school's Christmas Fairs dressed up as elves, providing entertainment, like singing and face-painting. It is always a lot of fun, we enjoy ourselves as do the students. This is a great way to make the schools aware that we are there to provide support wherever it is necessary.
In March 2016, Katie and Tim of The Student Workshop took part in a Jailbreak Challenge, in which they had to get as far away from Royal Holloway's Campus as possible in 36 hours - without spending any money on travel!
The pair managed to catch a ride to Aberdeen from London, before hitching themselves all the way to their final stop - Kyle of Lochalsh in Scotland, a total distance of 736km!
The Student Jailbreak helped to raise money for East African Playgrounds, and The Student Workshop team raised over £100 for their efforts.
Katie Austin and Timothy Barker head off on a journey of mystery and wonder!
During the festive season, a group of elves and a Snow Fairy visited St. Cuthberts' Christmas Fayre.
