The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

Thanks for your interest! Below is some information about Barrow. If you want to find out more or if you want to get involved, please either email or find us on facebook (UBU Barrow). Hope to see you soon!


Barrow is a student run social group for the patients of Callington Road psychiatric hospital, run on Sunday evenings from 7-9pm. We sit around chilling with tea, coffee, squash and biscuits and play lots of games! We meet at the Union at around 6.15 and then take taxis to Callington Road. We can then drop everyone home by taxi afterwards. The transport is all paid for out of the student volunteering budget, so it’s a free ride! 

Normally we take a maximum of 10 students each week. It’s fantastic if we get this many every week, because it allows some lucky people to visit the elderly ward too, where much fun can be had bingo-ing the night away. To make sure as many people as possible get to come to Barrow, we operate a rota system so that it’s not always the same people who get to go every week, if it’s busy. Although this can mean people occasionally miss out, it also means that Barrow isn't a massive commitment - there's absolutely no obligation to be there every week. We'll send an e-mail out each week asking who wants to come, and then will get back to those who respond to let them know if they have a place that week.

One of the co-ordinators, most probably two, will always be around each week so don't worry about knowing what's going on - no previous experience is necessary!
