The Charity Society is based on the Sutton Bonington Campus. Our goal is to run events for various charities throughout the year and raise as much awareness and money for them as possible.
Last year, we found that it was difficult for students to put on charity events without being part of a society or having the backing of one, so this society was produced to be a platform to support all non-profit events on SB. Our committee has plenty of experience at running events, with our president being last years SB Movember ambassador as well as our treasurer and secretary running as the current SB Movember ambassadors.
As this society was only started during the final term of last year. We have not had a lot of time to put on events, however at the end of last year we ran a Food and Clothing drive alongside the RuckSack Project and the Trussel Trust Food Bank which was highly successful.
We are looking forward to putting on other events throughout the year including:
- Cake sales
- Fun runs
- Karaoke nights
- Open mic nights
- “Shave down” events (have you ever waxed the legs of your lecturer?!)
- And many more..
Your membership allows you to use the society to run events, it also allows you reduced entry to Charity Soc events and allows you access to Charity Soc's limited funding.
