Zanna lives below the line

Posted on

Year 1 student Suzanna (Zanna) Wolff has been taking part in the 2013 Live Below the Line Challenge to raise money for Oxfam. The challenge is to live on less than £1 a day for food for five days, with no food or drink to be given to you by anyone.

“It was quite tough,” says Zanna. ” A typical day would be two slices of toast for breakfast, occasionally with baked beans, a sandwich and spaghetti for lunch, and spaghetti for dinner. I had tomato sauce, kidney beans, sweet corn and sardines to add to the spaghetti and had variations of these in each spaghetti meal. I had a tiny bit of money left over and so towards the end my luxuries were an apple and a Freddo, which I spread out over a few days.”

To raise more money, Zanna held a cake sale in College with the support of friends James Roach, Jeannie Bellamy and Erjon Biba.
