… to Matthew Holehouse, former Stu editor, who has been nominated for the only interesting category at the NUS Awards 2008. The results come out on Monday 9 June.

MH certainly deserves a prize for his journalism, but Aldate isn’t sure it’s worth sitting through the announcements of “Endsleigh Student of the Year” and “Course Representative of the Year” to pick it up.

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
