About Us

Butler Charity Committee aims to raise as much money and awareness as possible for nominated charities by hosting a wide variety of fundraising events and activities. In the past, Charity Committee have run many successful events including game show nights, pub quizzes, dare nights, 24-hour challenges and more.

We are a flexible committee and therefore you can drop in and out of sessions while still being super involved! We’re always open to new, fun, and innovative ways to raise money and awareness for our designated charities.

If you have any interest in charity, fundraising or event planning come along to Charity Committee meetings on Wednesday at 5:30pm on Teams! Click on the link to join!

Our News

Our 2020/2021 nominated charities are RT Projects, Show Racism the Red Card, and Macmillan Cancer Support! All our events this academic year will be raising money for these three charities so make sure to keep an eye on the website and our social media pages for more information on our upcoming events!

We’ve managed to raise £56 for Show Racism the Red Card through our ‘Wear Red and Donate’ day! Thank you to everyone for wearing, sharing and donating!

We’ve raised £222 for RT Projects from Dare Night! Thank you to everyone who came along and participated, we had an amazing time organising it for you and hope you all enjoyed yourselves!!

Formal from Home was a huge success – we raised £54 from the formal starter packs and £24.60 from the song requests on Butler Radio! With some very generous donations from amazingly kind contributors, we have raised £100 for Operation Christmas Joy, wrapping up Michaelmas Term nicely!
