THE OX­FORD & CAM­BRIDGE CLUB OF NIGE­RIA MAY BALL

THISDAY Style - - CONTENT -

Re­cently, The Ox­ford and Cam­bridge Club of Nige­ria hosted its an­nual may Ball at The Wings, Vic­to­ria Is­land with a masqued theme this year. Ap­prox­i­mately 350 peo­ple, a mélange of alumni and non-alumni, gath­ered for hours to en­joy a won­der­ful evening of en­ter­tain­ment and net­work­ing.

The evening was high­lighted by the launch of the Club’s first en­dow­ment ini­tia­tive. In re­cent years, the Club has gar­nered fi­nan­cial sup­port from its alumni com­mu­nity in part­ner­ship with the Cam­bridge Trust and now, with the en­dow­ment ini­tia­tive, it hopes to be able to send more bright men and women to the uni­ver­si­ties of Ox­ford and Cam­bridge, peo­ple who would oth­er­wise not be able to at­tend for fi­nan­cial rea­sons. The Club wel­comes the op­por­tu­nity to work with other or­ga­ni­za­tions who share a sim­i­lar vi­sion. Thus it was in­spir­ing to hear mrs Adekanla Ade­goke, from the Oando foun­da­tion, a part­ner or­gan­i­sa­tion at the event dis­cuss the vi­sion of the foun­da­tion in sup­port­ing lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion ini­tia­tives across the coun­try.

Then toasts were made, more food was served and the night was topped with fire­works, laugh­ter and danc­ing. We look for­ward with an­tic­i­pa­tion to next year’s may Ball.
