Campaigns

Our SU Campaigns 2017/18

This year, a variety of ‘Campaigns’ have been chosen by our new Campaigns and Wellbeing Officer, Lewis Bebb with help from other members of the SU and Student Support Hub.

These charities not only will have money raised for them but, more importantly awareness of the charities and what they stand for will be exposed to the student body.

The major organisations and charities the SU are excited to be raising awareness for throughout the 2017/18 academic year are:

  • Movember
  • HeForShe
  • Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

Movember

Male Health and Wellbeing

Over the last ten years this movement from the USA has exploded onto the international stage. Movember consists of men growing eccentric facial hair for the whole of November; raising money for men who need it most. Movember’s participants grow larger and larger every year with athletes, film stars, and work colleagues all supporting the foundation.

Movember raises huge exposure for male health and male mental health issues which may be swept under the rug and not talked about. So here at the RAU we created a ‘Movember Team’ and with the support of many of the clubs and societies of the University, we were able to help raise awareness of issues with male health and wellbeing.

HeforShe

The Education of Equality

HeForShe is a solidarity campaign for the advancement of women initiated by UN Women. Its goal is to achieve equality by encouraging men and boys as agents of change and take action against negative inequalities faced by women and girls

HeforShe is a new movement which is centred around gender equality and education of men. Unlike other movements which could be perceived as similar, HeforShe is not purely feminist, but believes in greater gender equality across all aspects of life including education, work, health, or even politics.

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

Each year, an army of volunteers distribute our iconic paper poppies throughout the nation, collecting donations in return to help support the vital work the Royal British Legion do for the Armed Forces community.

Members of the public wear the paper poppy on their chest as a symbol of Remembrance: to remember the fallen Service men and women killed in conflict.

This year, our RAU students joined the army of volunteers to work with the Royal British Legion to deliver poppies and collection boxes to a variety of locations around the town. As in previous years, the RAUSU had sole responsibility for the collections at the Tesco Extra in Cirencester and manned the stand there every day until Remembrance Sunday raising a staggering £8, 529.73 – a new record!!
