Karnival is the University of Nottingham's student-run charity, and the largest one of its kind in Europe, raising a record-breaking £1,766,528.26 in 2014!

Karnival is a charity focused student-run service aiming to fundraise as much money as possible with the support of our students!

We do this in many ways, partly with the biggest and best events at university, including Nottingham institutions the '7 Legged' bar crawl, St. Paddy's, the Safe Sex ball and a year long culminatuion of the epic and extravagant Snowflake Ball!

Karnival also offer rag-raids across the UK, including London Mega-raids, regularly raising tens of thousands of pounds for national charities such as Breast Cancer Campaign, Children with Cancer and Marie Curie - in 2014 we raised £66,552.72 in one day for Poppy Appeal! 

We also support charities by taking hundreds of students on fundraising challenges, from climbing Mt Kilimanjaro to trekking to the lost city of the Incas, as well as smaller trips like the London to Paris bike ride. Karnival helps the student's of Nottingham to raise hundreds of thousands for charity, whilst having the opportunity to go on the trip of a lifetime.

As well as fundraising activities, Karnival aid and support the local community through volunteer work 'Kontact', from volunteering on the children's ward in QMC, to farm trips with disabled children, to the annual Sherry Party for the elderly, Kontact will get involved with anyone end everyone in the community!
