||Right To Play has been the sole charity partner of BUCS since 2008. BUCS is the national governing body for higher education sport in the UK. Its vision is to enhance the student experience in performance, competition and participation, currently delivering over 50 sports to hundreds of thousands of students around the country.|
||BUCS enables Right To Play to reach thousands of students around the UK and engage them in raising money for Right To Play and awareness about the cause. Since 2008, hundreds of Student Ambassadors and thousands of volunteers have organised events in support of Right To Play or taken part in challenges, collections and events organised by Right To Play. Right To Play is promoted at all major BUCS organised events and their support enables us to develop and deliver campaigns at universities around the UK, such as holding an annual Right To Play Day. |
The partnership with BUCS began with a focus on recruiting Student Ambassadors at universities around the UK but has grown rapidly and Right To Play is now supported by countless sports clubs, societies, RAGs, student unions, university sport departments and individual students all around the UK.
Hundreds of thousands of students and university staff have engaged with Right To Play through the partnership with BUCS, raising enough money for Right To Play to reach over 30,000 children in the developing world. Thank you to all the students and BUCS staff around the UK who have made this possible.
Message from Right To Play Ambassador Mark Cavendish
|"The partnership with BUCS was one of the first major relationships built by Right To Play in the UK and has been of real importance in raising the profile of the organisation as well as money. It allows us to reach young people in the UK and empower them to change the lives of those of similar ages to themselves in the developing world.” Leo Matlock, Partnerships Manager at Right To Play.|
