Meet the JCR committee

This is your JCR committee! We’re here to represent you to College and the outside world. Each position has a specific responsibility, so if you need help or information just browse through below and get in touch with whoever suits your needs most. If you’re unsure, our President is always more than happy to help and point you in the right direction.

President – Sam Pearce

Hey everyone, I’m Sam, a second-year lawyer from Leeds. My hobbies are acting, performing magic, and mooting. You’ll usually be able to find me working or relaxing in the buttery, but if not then I’ve probably been coerced into doing some form of exercise. Please feel free to approach me or email me at any time with your concerns or suggestions – I’m here alongside the whole JCR committee to help you have the best experience at Churchill possible.

Vice President – Aaron Syposz

Hello, I’m Aaron, a first year MMLer here at Churchill doing French and German, and the JCR VP for this year. You can usually hear my dulcet tones on Cam FM on Saturday evenings, and see me all year round in the buttery drinking far too many of those Nutella frappes.

Treasurer – Reiko Barker

Hi! I’m Reiko, an MMLer reading French and German from Nottingham (though I’m afraid I don’t have the accent)! I love interior design, ballet and travelling so I’m often booking spontaneous trips mid-term to make the most of how close we are to Stansted! As the treasurer, I’m responsible for all the money side of things and making sure we can make all the wonderful events and ideas of the JCR happen! :))

Men’s Officer – Matthew O’Neill

Hiya !! I’m Matt, a 2nd year MMLer from Preston in Lancashire! Aside from constant daydreams of the year abroad, you’ll always find me trying to work underneath the trees on the field or on a long walk invading another college’s buttery (Homerton isn’t as far as you’d expect!) I love to cook – massive MML malewife energy – and I’m in university teams for archery and Pokémon (of all things!)

Women’s Officer – Kenzie Vinnicombe

Hiya, I’m a second year PBS student and your women’s welfare officer! I’m from South Wales (which I make my entire personality) and I love going on walks into town, gossiping in the buttery with a Nutella mocha frappe and going to the gym in order to procrastinate watching lectures :)) Although my time management is shocking I’ll always find time for a pub trip and Gardenias <3

International Officer – Echo Lyu

Hi, I’m Echo. A second year HSPSer! Really looking forward to organising the next international freshers week and introducing all the amazing things about Churchill and Cambridge to international freshers!

LGBTQ+ Officer – Rachel Hammond

Hi I’m Rae, a second year bio natsci from Devon and I’m your LGBTQ+ officer this year My hobbies include trawling Wikipedia for strange fun facts to inflict upon my friends, trying to prevent my hair dye from turning orange, and slowly working my way through every tea Sainsbury’s has to offer!

BAME Officer – Lily Archer

Hey I’m Lily and I’m a second year MMLer! This year I’ve been involved in the uni poledancing society and have also volunteered at a local school in Cambridge. I’m so excited to be your BAME officer for the next year and can’t wait to organise lots of socials and formals for the community!! I also think it’s really important to increase access so we can expand the college’s BAME representation :))

Mental Health Officer – Nancy Lake

Hi! I’m Nancy, a second year English student from Edinburgh. Some of Cambridge’s best bits have got to be cycling into town or to a lecture on a sunny day, sitting outside for a coffee on King’s Parade, getting involved in college sport (hello unofficial college lacrosse champions) and the abundance of student theatre! If anyone wants to voice any concerns about their own wellbeing or wider college issues, please let me know!

Disabilities Officer – Absent (Applications wanted.)

Trans & Non-Binary Officer – Al Sergeeva

I’m Al the Pal, a second year mathmo! I hope to be as approachable as possible in my role as trans and nonbinary officer, so please feel free to talk to me about any issues that might be bothering you, or to simply have a chat. You can currently find me in my room, or alternatively stop me at the buttery where I frequently go to buy ungodly amounts of snacks 🙂

Equal Opportunities Officer – Osa Iluobe

My name’s Osa, I’m a second year HSPS student from London and I’ve been elected the JCR Equalities officer.

Ents Officer – Becca MacCaig

Heyyy I’m Becca! A second year English student from Rugby and I’ve absolutely loved being at Churchill so far. I’m an avid lacrosse player even if my performance may not reflect my enthusiasm and also love a good pub trip (especially a beer garden in the summer WoW)!

Ents Officer – Charlotte Wiltshire

Hi! I’m Charlotte, a second year MMler, doing French and Spanish. In my spare time I love sport, whether it’s uni lacrosse or chilled games in the college grounds, and love love love coffee and brunch in town.

Ents Officer – Lily Blue Harper

Hello! I’m Lily Blue, a second year English student from Camden in London. I have done all sorts of society bits and bobs this year so far, from yoga to Cam FM to Churchill Fem Soc. I even made a freshers’ foray into the uni Taylor Swift society! Can’t wait to dive into more Cambridge randomness.

Green Officer – Dylan Gannaway

I’m Dylan, a 2nd year lawyer who cares about the environment and so is better than you. Most at least. I am looking forward to everyone getting involved in the push for a bigger eco-community and Churchill and everyone being able to enjoy the amazing outdoor space we have.

Access & Education Officer – Katie Heggs

Hi, I’m Katie, a second year HisPol from Manchester. I love history, politics (original I know), museums, reading and camping, walking and just generally being outside, preferably in the Cambridge sunshine. In my capacity as Access and Education officer I aim to work closely with the access team to let prospective students know about our unique and friendly atmosphere – feel free to come to me with any general educational issues which I can bring to the attention of the committee.

Class Act Officer- Annabelle Moger-Taylor

Hi, I’m Annabelle I’m a second year bionatsci student from Devon. This year I’ve taken up rowing with college as well as playing bass guitar in different jazz bands across the uni. Whenever I get some time off I can usually be easily convinced into a night out or you’ll find me wandering around the gorgeous college grounds. I’m excited about creating a really welcoming space for anyone and making sure people know the class act initiatives exist!

Facilities Officer – Ellie Taylor

Heya!! I’m Ellie, a second-year geographer, and a rare Brummie in Cambridge. In my spare time, I am a cross country and track runner (>800m only) for the University (my main personality trait), drink excessive amounts of coffee (a big believer in the pret subscription), play the odd bit of college netball, ladies and mixed, and am part of the Cambridge geography society! I’m down for any kind of night out or even just walk- so message me if you ever want a chat or a boogie 🙂

Computing Officer – Simon Luo

Heyo, I’m Simon, a second year CompSci from London and I’m going to be your Computing officer this year. Since coming to Cambridge, I’ve picked up boxing and played for a couple of college sports. Other than that, I spend a lot of time hanging out in the buttery or the games room 🙂
