Manny or Emannuelle, is Regent’s oldest resident, our much celebrated tortoise. Every year we throw a birthday party for her to raise money for Meningitis Now. The role of organising the party is the responsibility of our charity rep and tortoise keeper, both members of the JCR that are elected to their posts. Our charity rep also organises events throughout the year to raise money for our elected charities: Urunji Child Care Trust Malawi, Rape Crisis England and Wales and Refugee Resource Oxfordshire. Our tortoise keeper, as the name suggests, is in charge of taking care of Manny and training her to compete in Oxford’s annual Tortoise race, this year she came in second place!
