Community days are the perfect experience that give both local families and students a chance to interact in and around the Castle. With 3 events a year, each community day is designed with a theme and activities everyone can get involved in. To be a volunteer for any of the community days you don’t necessarily need to have any other experience with CCA, you just need to have a positive attitude and be a friendly and reliable person. Volunteering is a great chance to get involved in CCA, have a fun time with other peers, and can be used to boost your personal statement.
Feel free to send a message to this year’s community day officer with any ideas, suggestions, or if there is any other information needed – Melissa Ebanks at Jmnl25@durham.ac.uk.
Hiya! As this year’s community days officer I am super excited for this year’s events as they will be bigger and better than ever. I study Archaeology, am a part of UCBC as well as being involved in the CCA. I am most likely to be found in Revs and am guaranteed to lose at card games and pub quizzes. I own enough fancy dress to open another Cloth on the High Street – obscure items are my forte any troubles dm me. My favourite castle moment so far would have to be the Noahs Ark rowing social and hill bar crawl, turns out owl facepaint is harder than it looks and falling down the players stairs isn’t as memorable as one would think. I’m so happy to be a part of CCA for the second year it’s going to be as amazing as possible despite the changes due to Covid. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
