Six Linacre Ladies that Lift, in bodyweight categories ranging from under 50.5kg to over 90kg, competed at the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association (BDFPA) Southern Counties / East Midlands Championships on Saturday.
20th October 2016 marks the 492nd anniversary of the death of Thomas Linacre, whom the College is named after.
He was a true Renaissance man, being a classicist, medical doctor, and priest; Linacre members today continue this tradition of representing a variety of academic areas.
Linacre is continuing to establish itself as one of the greenest Colleges in Oxford after recently investing £100,000 into the Low Carbon Hub, an Oxford-based clean energy social enterprise.
The Principal invited students to identify an investment opportunity that was i) local; ii) a good financial investment, and iii) ‘did good’ for the local community. After considering options, the student committee presented the Low Carbon Hub’s share offer to the Finance Committee, who approved the recommendation.
