Bill Mo Winter Ball

So Bill Mo had their winter ball yesterday,

It was a great laugh and everyone got ridiculously drunk and had a brilliant night.

It was a Great Gatsby themed masquerade ball. The location is The City Rooms in Leicester, a stunning Georgian grade one listed venue. The venue did not disappoint and the sheer amount of alcohol meant the ball was a huge success.

Bill Mo helped raise nearly £100 for Epilepsy Society, with a raffle.

A big thanks to Zippy, Todd  and Greg for organising it and Ryan for photographing the event.

Stamford Race for Life 13th May

A massive thank you to the 24 people that got up at 7am to help marshal at the Stamford Race for Life on sunday. Luckily the weather was fantastic throughout the day, and with volunteers from other halls, managed to successfully marshal over 3000 runners.  Nearly £2000 has been raised from the event for Bill Mo RAG, another big step in moving up the tables!

BEST Awards – Bill Mo 2nd!!!

The BEST (Building Environmental Sustainability Together) awards celebrate the Best of Sustainability at the Loughborough. The awards were open to Staff, Students, suppliers and members of the public, whilst the awards ceremony took place on the 30th April 2012.

Bill Mo was a main contender for the coveted ‘BEST Hall’ award after performing well in the Halls Ethics & Environment League table.

Throughout the year we have held environmental themed socials to raise awareness of sustainable living & recycling, held litter picks around the hall & did numerous switch off nights to save energy!

We also appointed 10 environmental champions whose work in promoting sustainability around hall also helped Bill Mo push ourselves up the league table!

Following a networking session focused on sustainable food, we had a sustainable sourced dinner served on plates made from banana leaves and wine from cups made of corn starch! Then came the awards where we came 2nd!!!

Congratulations to all those who helped Bill Mo become such a sustainable hall! But remember that next year we can only do better…why not even improve sustainability day to day? Turn off those lights, heaters & unneeded electrical appliances, buy cage free eggs and recycle loads!
