I’m a 2nd year Geographer at Catz. I can usually be found either on the water rowing or in the water swimming. As well as being a keen sportsperson, I am also involved in a great deal of charity work and have recently trekked the Great Wall of China in aid of a children’s charity. I’m really looking forward to participating in the Telethon, which will give me the opportunity to discover more about the history of the College, discuss the experiences of alumni, and raise funds to support current and future Catz students.

Liam Saddington

I'm a second year student at Catz, reading Geography – so far, I’ve progressed to 17 different colouring pencils. Next year, I'm on the JCR Committee as Welfare Rep and I’m looking forward to providing lots of bagels and cups of tea.  I think it will be great to speak to Alumni during the Telethon to find out more about Catz history and whether its food has always been as great. I'm hoping next year to complete the six meal challenge of breakfast, buttery, lunch, buttery, scaf and hall!

Katherine Hickson

I'm a second year Geography student here at Catz. Aside from colouring in, I spend much of my spare time at the sports centres and I also compete for the University and College in Modern Pentathlon. I'm really looking forward to talking with Catz alumni and hopefully raising some funds to help current and future Catz students. 

Joe Cock

I’m a fourth year languages student, which makes me the token oldie of the Telethon team (and of Catz UGs as a whole!). I chose to study French out of a love for the country’s food, the wine and the cynicism. My interests include cooking, learning then forgetting new languages, and travelling to far-off corners of the globe where my unfortunate surname is not a social burden. I look forward to chatting with alumni and absorbing some of their hard-earned wisdom.

James Taylor

I’m a 3rd year Geographer at Catz, and this will be my second time doing the Telethon. Last year, I really enjoyed connecting with alumni and hearing about the different paths that people have taken since leaving College. I was the Catz rugby captain last season, and when I have the time, I also lend my services to the football and cricket teams. 

Holly Jackson

I am a 3rd year Geography student at Catz. In my free time, I play hockey for the Catz girls’ hockey team, I serve as Vice President of the Oxford Guild Business Society, and work as Business Executive for the Cherwell newspaper. I am really excited to participate in the Catz Telethon, to hear the stories of Catz Alumni, and of course, to raise much valued funds for the College.

Fleur Nash

I am now a third year Human Scientist, which I can't quite believe, as it seems only yesterday that I was arriving at Catz for the first time. I have tried to partake in Oxford life as much as possible,  from coxing the men's first boat for the College, to organising the 2014 Climate Forum and taking part in the university-wide drama and sports scenes. Yet, it is the unique Catz community which I love the most. Being a member of the JCR Committee has really made me appreciate the warmth and openness of our College. I look forward to speaking to alumni and finding out more about what Catz was like in the past! 

Clare Smedley

I am about to start my third year studying medicine at Catz (although sometimes it feels like I spend more time doing music than Medicine). I sing in the Catz choir and in another choir outside college, enjoy performing in shows, occasionally (and badly) play for the College girls football team, and I have perfected a handstand (if someone holds my feet) with the university gymnastics club. I'm looking forward to speaking to lots of Catz alumni whilst working on the Telethon. It will be great to hear about their time studying and living here and raise money to help others have the same experiences at Catz.

Chloe Rutland

I am about to go into my 2nd year of studying Geography at Catz. My first year was so much fun. I was lucky enough to row for the College and become a Lower Boats Captain, attend the Varsity Ski Trip, and work as a student ambassador and a Schools Plus tutor. I'm really looking forward to speaking to alumni of the college and listening to tales from Catz days gone by. I'm also keen to raise vital funds which will go towards helping Catz and preserving its unique culture.

Emeritus Fellow Lord Attenborough Dies

The College was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Emeritus Fellow, acclaimed actor, and Oscar-winning director, Lord Attenborough, who passed away on 24 August 2014 at the age of 90.

Richard Attenborough held the Cameron Mackintosh Chair of Contemporary Theatre in 1996. He generously invited students on to a film set during his time as Visiting Professor, as well as giving them access to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), of which he was President.
