A new event for this year, the day saw people from across the Unit facilities and admin teams gather for an afternoon of ice-cream, games and food.

Held on Wednesday 13th July 2022 at the New College Sports grounds, the MRC MHU Summer Party was the first large in-person social event held by the Unit in more than two years.

Attendees took part in a variety of games ranging from a ‘clonal competition’ relay race and egg throw, a marshmallow/pasta engineering challenge, a Unit quiz and an obstacle course where teams competed in rounds of PPE prep, cold box stacking and speed pipetting.

At the end of the day the scores were tallied and the winning team were ‘The Complement Receptors’.

Thanks go to the organising committee, MHU Executive Coordinator Karin Mcleod, and all of the games captains who made the day go so smoothly.
