Students at De Montfort University are holding an event this Friday at Trinity House, De Montfort University, to celebrate Chinese culture.

The University has one of the highest numbers of Chinese students in the UK and twelve Chinese student volunteers have helped organise the event, which is part of the University's award winning Mile2 project. Echo Hou, a third year Accounting and Finance student has led the project as part of a six month work placement on the Mile2 project, said that: "the event will be a great chance to tell people about many aspects of Chinese culture, we will have Chinese tea and cake and guests will be able to watch Chinese dancing, listen to Chinese music and try their hand at traditional Chinese calligraphy" As well as showcasing Chinese culture to students, staff and members of the public, the event will also be raising valuable funds for UNICEF in light of the recent earthquake in Sichuan province. The earthquake has killed 200 people and displaced over 10,000 residents. UNICEF already has over 40 child friendly spaces in the area and is monitoring the impact that the earthquake has had on children very closely. Although the event is free, there will be the chance for guests to donate money to the charity at the event. "Given the way that the earthquake has affected people in Sichuan province, we felt it was important that we used the event to raise money as well", Echo said. The event will take place from 1pm on Friday 26th April. If you would like more information please contact the Mile² team on 0116 257 7102 or email mile2@dmu.ac.uk
