Hey! STAR (Student Action for Refugees) is one of the two charity affiliated societies at ULIP. September will mark the 2nd year ULIP has worked with STAR, a UK based charity that works with over 50 universities and colleges to support the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. Last year we held lots of fundraising events such as bake sales, clothing sales, and my favourite - Christmas mulled wine. As well as pizza, film & discussion nights, and trips to museums. We have also started a volunteering group with a local refugee charity serving free breakfasts in Paris. Next academic year we will be continuing and expanding similar events and opportunities! We are also in the process of setting up a new magazine, which will contain articles on the pressing issues of today, as well as updates on our STAR activities, with all alll proceeds donated to ULIP STAR.
