This year, our chosen charity is 'It's In The Bag'. The charity provides hands-on support for men with testicular cancer in the South-West, as well as raising awareness of the disease across the region and beyond. We hvae chosen this charity as its very close to our Charity Sec, Amelia Heather. If you have any questions regarding our charity then please message Amelia (S1711895@connect.glos.ac.uk)
We are excited to announce our first charity event of the year. 'Out With The Old, In With The New' is a 7 a-side hockey tournament that will see a number of different clubs with past and present members come together and play a bit of hockey and raise money for 'It's In The Bag' and 'Breast Cancer Now'. Both charities are important to the club and the money raised will be spilt between the two.
Every club will host a fundraiser event throughout the year. This year our event, Bonkers Bingo will be held at Yates Cheltenham on Monday the 7th of October.
At UOGWH, we have been very successful in the past with our charitable efforts and take pride in raising awareness. Please take a look below at some of our charity work from previous years.
In 2014, UOGWH won Best Charitable event of the Year Award at the annual Sports Award Ceremony.
As a club, we raised £1500 for Brain Tumour Research and we did this by designing and creating blue & blue bubble hats and celebrating in style at our 'Bobble hat Bash'.
In 2014/2015, we focused our charitable work on raising money for Cervical Cancer. We did this by creating our own #TeamGlos cups which were a hit for Varsity this year.
