Oxford students, South Slavic Society, and St Antony's College, have come together in a fundraiser collecting £1.280 in a relief action for flooded Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia. A student-run band, The Balkan Wanderers, played live during the evening, supported by the Harcourt Arms musicians, Nigel Brown and Chris Bayne, who volunteered to set the entire concert up. Students designed and printed T-shirts for high donations. The highest donated amount on the night was £100. The Warden of St Antony's, as well as other academics from the College, have contributed to the funds. All money collected will be sent to the Red Cross, which is distributing emergency help in Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia. The message of the night was clear: "Oxford is with you!"

Oxford students have also created their website for fundraising money. You can donate here:
