Students raise £12,505 for charity in five months


UNIVERSITY students from Warrington and Chester have raised a staggering £12,505 for charity since the academic term began in October.
The money has gone to 29 charities across Warrington and Chester.
The University of Chester’s cheerleading squad held a charity fundraiser every month, wearing a particular colour to training sessions to represent a specific charity.
Charities to benefit were Breast Cancer Now, MEAction and the Samaritans.
The squad also took part in the “Sleep Out for the Homeless” to raise £1,181.
Netball players, including the Warrington Mixed Netball squad, raised money for Papyrus; Mind; British Heart Foundation; Chester Aid to the Homeless; Dementia UK and Breast Cancer Awareness.
They have many more events coming up throughout this term, including a sponsored run for Manchester Children’s Hospital and the annual Take Me Out event, which is in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The Alzheimer’s Society also benefitted from their efforts.
The Orchestral Society raised money for Children in Need as did the Drama Society and there was support also for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, who have been supported by the university for the past five years.
Student activity manager Sarah Latham said: “We actively encourage all our sports and societies to raise and give across the community. It’s fantastic to see another strong term and we hope to match our record this year.”
