Freeze for Global Poverty

15th of August we are having a FREEZE for Global
Poverty to raise awareness about the cause and the upcoming event '1.4 Billion Reasons'.

Start time is 1pm in the Square, and the FREEZE will start at 1.40pm sharp, we will all freeze for 1.4 minutes for the 1.4 billion people still living in extreme poverty. Come to the square in jeans and black top, please note if rainy, then this will be on Sunday.

The Cathedral have been really supportive and have agreed to chime the Bells at 1.40, to make this event even more powerful and really grab peoples attention, plus the Dean himself will be there - so WE NEED YOU!!!
Your friends, your flatmates, your family, your groups and clubs!!

There will be live music and a chance to skate at the ice skating rink there, which ties in nicely with the theme of the event.
