18th Feb MUMS Charity Week Emily Davies (Secretary)

Hello lovelies,

I hope you're all having a good week! As some of you may know each year the Students' Union picks a charity to partner with to be our charity of the year and this year it is MS Ireland. So we have decided to hold a MUMS Charity Week from the 22nd to the 25th of February where all the funds will go to MS Ireland. 

All events for the week will cost €2 and all money raised will go to MS Ireland. Our first event of the week will be next Monday the 22nd of February at 8pm, and will be a fabulous, fun quiz on Zoom. 

Our second event will be a Zoom dance workshop on Tuesday, the 23rd of February at 8pm. This workshop will be with our super talented chair person, and co-choreographer of the 2021 Inters production, Emma Thornton. This workshop will feature dances from the two most voted for shows on our Instagram poles last week, Kinky Boots and Hairspray!

Our third event of the week will be on Wednesday the 24th of February at 8pm and this will be an open mic on Zoom, so bring your snacks, drinks and join us in singing out our favourite tunes in a good old fashioned open mic just like as if we were in the SU. 

The final event to bring our charity week to a close will be our Masked Singer Masquerade Ball on Thursday the 25th of February at 7pm. We want you all to dress up in whatever fancy gear you want, and event a mask to keep in tune with the masquerade theme. On the night we will have our MUMS Masked Singer competition featuring some of your fellow MUMS members, and we might even have a premier or two of things we've been working on to show you...;) So be sure to dust off your fancy gear, bring your snacks, drinks and your party mood!

We hope you will all join us in force to help raise funds for this amazing charity and have a good week while doing so. Further details about Zoom links and how to pay etc. will be sent out in an email next week, they will also be available on out MULife page and on our socials so keep your eyes peeled. 

I hope you have a great week and I can't wait to see you all next week!
