Throughout the month of November, The Students’ Union ran numerous events in support of The Movember Foundation. These ranged from healthcare related talks on male cancers and mental health awareness, to general fundraising events like Movember Speed Dating and The Movember Pub Quiz. This campaign sparked new conversations around the importance of self-examination and self-care, with the intended goal of improving student wellbeing here at UWE. The campaign also saw us raise an incredible £3,800 for The Movember Foundation. The link to our fundraising page can be found here: https://monetwork.co/UWE.
I would like to thank every single person who helped to make this campaign possible. From the staff who organised events, to the students who raised money, none of this would have been possible without you. Please know that your support is greatly appreciated. I really enjoyed running this campaign and I hope that you all benefitted from it in some way. If you have any ideas for future events that build upon Movember, please do not hesitate to contact me.
