what is o.a.j.p.?
Oscott Action for Justice and Peace is a group that tries to raise awareness about various issues which are pertinent to those trying to live a morally responsible Christian life. An important part of the group’s work is seeking to offer practical help to those in need.
Each year the students and staff of St Mary’s College, Oscott, select three charities for which they try to raise awareness and funds through various events.
One of the charities is chosen to help us be mindful of the needs of people across the world and two are chosen to make us more conscious of the needs of those closer to home.
One of the charities we are supporting this year is the Jubilee Campaign. Listen to co-founder Lord David Alton talk about the work of the Jubilee Campaign:
charity duck race 2014
In June 2014 we organised a Charity Duck Race. 4,500 people purchased rubber ducks which were let loose down a river near the college. The Race raised a substantial amount for our charities.
