Fantastic effort by members of the FRG who helped, with other volunteers, to prepare 225 meals for new international students at BISC last week – a new record! What a wonderful way to help to make those who are new to the UK, and to Bristol, feel welcome!
Well done to all who helped throughout the busy evening!
The group helped, as usual, to make new international students feel welcome and at home in Bristol – by cooking an evening meal for them at BISC (Bristol International Student Centre)! This year we enjoyed using the new extension at BISC, and served 160 meals (choice of 5 mains, and two puddings, with salad, of course) with great ease!
Well done to the cooking team! Thanks also to Jack, who spent several summers in the lab, who came long to help as well!
Xiaoyu ran the Bristol 10k on Sunday for Bisc with a number of other international students, volunteers (and Jacqueline!). They all ran to help to raise money for the building project to extend the building at Bisc – a home away from home for all international students.
He ran an amazing time of 47 minutes – without any training! Well done Xiaoyu, and all the others for completing the race!
It was high time for the Faul Research Group (and friends) to have a social get together again! We made use of the fantastic (late) summer weather, and had a wonderful BBQ in the gardens of BISC.
Great weather, great food and great company!
Bristol International Student Centre (or better known as BISC) is the home away from home for all international students. BISC is turning 40 this year, and lots of people are helping to raise funds for a building project at the BISC premises.
Kazu helped out at the Gala Fundraising Dinner on Saturday evening (and washed hundreds of dishes!), and Horatio ran the Bristol 10K on Sunday (in the impressive time of 47 minutes!).
Well done both, and thanks for your efforts! Happy Birthday BISC!
With many new students arriving in Bristol from all over the world, members of the FRG went to BISC to help Chef Charl (and other BISC volunteers) to cook an evening meal!
It was a fun (but busy!) evening, and we managed to serve more than 120 two-course meals to new international students! Well done!
In this busy time of the year, and many new students arriving in Bristol, the FRG helped out at BISC, a local charity that helps to welcome international students. As in previous years, a team led by “Chef Charl” cooked Welcome Meals for international students. Sadly Angel and Dicker had left by the time this photo was taken:
We broke the record set last year, and prepared and served more than 140 meals on Tuesday evening! Well done!
