OCC 2023 – the OCC Trust
The OCC Trust, officially launched in 2023, is the Oxford Cultural Collective’s registered charity, which provides scholarships and bursaries to those setting out on their careers in food, drink and hospitality.
“We have already had the privilege of supporting numerous young people who are building their careers in food, drink and hospitality. In 2024 the Oxford Cultural Collective Trust is set to widen its reach to include many who might otherwise be overlooked and broaden our support of cultural and educational initiatives.” Ben McEwen, Chair, OCC Trust
The launch of the OCC Trust was marked with a reception at the Bermondsey Larder restaurant in June 2023.
The OCC Trust’s newest award – the Golden Chopsticks Scholarship – was launched by Gok Wan MBE and Ken Hom CBE, at a dinner in Din Tai Fung in April 2023.
