Celebrate 2014 – Avery Hill

We finished our week of Celebrate Difference and Diversity 2014 at our Avery Hill Campus and what a great way to round off the events.

We had a range of different stalls and activities including Global Greenwich from our International Office, mental health from Oxleas and Zoe Linekar our Mental Health Adviser, Learning and Talent Development, LGBT Staff Network and their lego competition, our BSc Health and Wellbeing Students were in attendance as was the lovely Lily from Dog Assistance in Disability.  We also had the university Craft Club showing off their skills with knitting and crochet and our HR colleague Ibi volunteered to do some hairdressing which she did very successfully.  It was a great day.Avery Hill Celebrate hairdressing 1 Maggie KnittingMexican Doll 1
