Bath Spa PRIDE at Bath Spa University

Text

Fundraisers: Kathryn Jeanes (BSU PRIDE Founder) and Cici Noir (BSU PRIDE’s Head of Burlesque)
Raised: £813.15

‘I’ve run a PRIDE event at my students’ union every spring for the past three years. I got groups of students from various societies and courses to volunteer to perform so that we had a showcase of amazing acts! 

‘We’ve had hundreds of students attend Bath Spa PRIDE and love it, but there is one moment every year where our event gets really quiet; when our drag queen, Miss Beaver (from Bristol and Bristol PRIDE) talks about HIV and the real life affect it has on people’s lives.’

Fraser’s quiz for London Marathon fundraising

Text

Fundraiser: Fraser
Raised: £450

'Holding a quiz was definitely the best decision I made when doing my London Marathon fundraising! I got the room for free, begged and borrowed prizes, wrote the questions myself and roped in my friend Mark to host. 

‘Make sure you give your friends and family lots of notice, send frequent reminders and politely ask everyone to bring lots of cash. And no, quiz goers, Lupita Nyong'o and Michael Fassbender weren’t in Seven Years a Slave.’
