Shortly before he died, acclaimed actor Alan Rickman kindly lent his support to Lady Margaret Hall's charity video. Watch it here:

This Tortoise Could Save a Life - Ft. Alan Rickman

Current LMH students have made a video to raise money for the ongoing refugee crisis with a little help from acclaimed actor Alan Rickman - and a hungry tortoise. 

The video, entitled This Tortoise Could Save a Life, is available worldwide on YouTube. For every view the video receives, YouTube is offering a small amount from advertising revenue to the uploader.

OneClickGiving will give all of the video proceeds directly to Refugee Council and Save the Children. Simply, the more shares the video gets, the more money it raises.

OneClickGiving founder, LMH student Oliver Phillips says: “I really hope that this video goes viral. It is an innovative project for an extremely important cause. We hope to find companies who might be willing to match the funds we make. Save the Children  does a lot of work around the world, while Refugee Council helps refugees living in the UK. The money will therefore be split between helping refugees globally, and in the UK. Our charities are two of the most effective at helping refugees, who desperately need your support. OneClickGiving is a new way of giving to charity. All you need to do is watch and share.”

OneClickGiving was co-founded by students Oliver Phillips, James Altunkaya and Olivia Phelan. After a series of meetings, the OneClickGiving team wrote the script, gained advice from LMH Principal Alan Rusbridger, secured Alan Rickman as narrator and shot the video.
