    We gave you the power to vote and you chose the modern Christmas classic Love Actually.

    Come and join us, donned in your finest Christmas jumpers, for instantly quotable dialogue, more cheese than a Swiss fondue party and the change to see Hugh Grant dancing in his underwear!

    There will be a prize for most festively dressed! Jumpers and tinsel all round!

    We hope to see you all there!

    'Effective actions' workshop

    Wednesday 2nd December, 8pm-10pm
    Arthur Quiller Couch Room, Divinity School, St John's College

    Whether you've just heard a little bit about 80,000 Hours/Giving What We Can/Effective Altruism and would like to get more involved and find out what small actions you can take to improve the world, or you're a seasoned EA who just needs a bit of motivation to get around to that high-impact project, you should come along! We've made a list of possible actions at, ranging from very small 5-minute tasks for people who are completely new to the ideas to big projects, and everything in between. They cover areas such as careers, giving, making better decisions, self-improvement and community-building.

    Building a movement for effective giving

    Thursday 26th November, 8pm-9.30pm
    Boys Smith Room, Fisher Building, St John's College

    REG is a community of professional poker players interested in making a positive impact. They recognize that the rationality skills for maximizing expected monetary value in poker transfer perfectly into maximizing the expected impact of charitable donations. Adriano Manno and Ruari Donnelly will be giving a short presentation on their organisation with time for questions afterwards. We will also be joined by the Cambridge University Poker society to talk a little bit about the modalities of earning and giving as a poker player. The event will be followed by alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks.
