||BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) is the national governing body for higher education sport in the UK.
It has a strong link with a huge number of universities, and specialises in organising sporting events and developing sporting facilities from grass roots to elite level. Right To Play are proud to be the sole charity partner of BUCS since 2008; our fundraising message reaches hundreds of thousands of students through Right To Play's presence at BUCS organised events.
There are plenty more opportunities for you to fundraise for Right To Play through BUCS, like having a sports social to raise money and awareness. Contact us to find out more.
RAG (Raising and Giving Societies) raise money and awareness for charities including Right To Play. RAG is thought to raise between £8-10 million every year for various charities!
Their regular social events and challenges are an invaluable way for Right To Play to raise funds for our work, whilst getting our name out there to students around the country. Right To Play is keen to establish further links with RAG societies around the country, and offer great opportunities for RAG societies to host collections at Chelsea Football Club, Surrey Cricket Club and grass court tennis tournaments!
The best way to find out more is contact us, and we can provide you with some great ideas to raise money.
Student Ambassadors are crucial to the presence of Right To Play at universities across the UK. Not only do they help to promote Right To Play amongst the student community, but they also become part of a much wider community of students and Athlete Ambassadors, volunteers and the Right To Play team.
Being a Student Ambassador means working on two key areas. Firstly, the Ambassadors represent, fundraise for and promote awareness of Right To Play within their university. Secondly, communicate with university societies and bodies, such as RAG, sports societies, and the Student Union, as well as with the students around them. This is key to raising interest and creating a real buzz around Right To Play and the work we do.
As well as helping Right To Play, a role as a Student Ambassador can be really beneficial for you, too! You have the power to change lives through fundraising, the opportunity to come up with your own imaginative event ideas, and the potential to develop many new skills such as event management, budgeting, marketing and design. As well as providing you with great experience to enhance your CV, the role of Student Ambassador is extremely sociable. It gives you the opportunity to meet new people and host successful events while helping out a very worthy cause!
