Pink Belt month
Our chosen charity this year is Huntington’s Disease, a charity which affects our members personally. The aim of Each event is to appreciate the control we have over our brain and body. We hope to not only raise money but awareness too.
Annually we run a ‘pink belt month’ where students purchase and wear a pink belt for that month, the profits of which go to our charity. This year the month will be July. Order your belt for £5 and get involved. Order form overleaf.
We also have some cool activities to go with it:
