Vanbrugh has become the latest college to announce plans to host some furry friends for a day during exam season. The mini farm will feature an alpaca, a donkey, pygmy goats, lambs, pigs, and a selection of rabbits and chickens. There will even be opportunities for students to take photos with the animals. The event is part of Vanbrugh JCRC’s ‘Destress for Success’ campaign which will also feature a cake evening. Alcuin and Halifax colleges will also be playing host to some stress relieving animals during the exam period.
Michael Duncan, JCRC Chair, said “This is the kind of event that just couldn’t happen without colleges and I’m extremely proud of the hard work that my committee have put into making this event, and the wider Destress for Success campaign, a triumph.” The farm will be held on Vanbrugh Bowl from 1pm-5pm on 28 May. Admission will be free for Vanbrugh students, with a small contribution required for other students.
