Children in Need Night 2013

Charity is something Stevo are passionate about. We work closely with DUCK, the Durham University Charities Kommittee, who offer a whole range of ways to get involved with chariddeeee. Skydives, expeditions around the world, sporting events, themed nights and rag raids are just a selection of some of the different things students are able to participate in, all in the name of raising money for good causes. You can find out more about DUCK at www.durhamduck.org.uk

Stevo also holds numerous fundraising events   itself throughout the year, with the proceeds   going towards a variety or worthwhile causes, such as the local Butterwick Hospice.  As well as charity auctions, DUCK week, sponsored sports events, and working with Durham Marrow, we are probably best known for our Children in Need night. Last year, through hair dying and shaving, a bit of male waxing, and some baths in beans, we raised over £1000 on the night,  which resulted in one of our previous JCR Presidents getting a tattoo of the college motto on his arm!

If you have any questions or want to find out more about the charitable work that we do, then please send them to the Charities Officer, Kiera Prior, at kiera.prior@durham.ac.uk
