What we’ve been up to so far (a summary)

Hey everyone,

This blog post will be about the fundraising events that we have hosted so far, including pictures taken from our other social media pages, and about our future plans.

We have all been working hard in order to reach our fundraising goal for us to be able to stay, live and research on the island of Trinidad for 10 weeks.

First off, we had our 90s themed pub quiz at Coopers that drew in big crowds.

After Christmas break, we started semester 2 off with a bang by hosting a bingo night and a raffle at Coopers.

We have been really lucky as the prizes that we have for our events have been donatedĀ  to us by some generous people and companies.

In between these events, we have also been bucket shaking at concerts and football and rugby matches around Glasgow and Edinburgh to raise extra cash.

We have organised a bake sale outside of the Glasgow University’s Queen Margaret Union with baked treats made and served by the team members.

Most recently, we organised a Race Night at the Record Factory with horses to be bought and bet on, and many prizes to be won. This night has been our most successful yet with an amazing turn out and a good amount of money raised.
