In October, Cheer and Stunt held their Breast Cancer Awareness month campaign, raising over £200.00 for CoppaFeel! and Cancer Research UK. The Panthers wore pink to their training sessions and shared vital information on the importance of monthly self-checks.

Raising money for charity:
The Students’ Union itself is a registered charity, and as such, all affiliated Student Groups are part of the registered charity. This means that all money that is fundraised for charity must be banked through the SU in order to comply with UK Charity Law. This applies for all Student Groups all year round, including out-of-term time.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we are not currently able to accept paying-in forms and cash donations in person. We advise that you do not collect any cash at this time. Instead of coming into the Students' Union, you should download the Charity Donation Form here, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are raising money via an established online platform (e.g. JustGiving) then you must let us know by emailing email@example.com. Once your fundraiser is finished, you must let us know the total that has been donated online, so that we can update our records. As well as ensuring that we abide by UK Charity Law, this process also makes sure that your Student Group gets recognition for all of your fundraising.
Full information can be found in our Committee Training handbook, 'Student Group Financial Management'. If you've got any questions about fundraising for an external charity, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you!
