Earlier in the academic year students in St John’s College, Durham University, were canvassed about which charities to support this year and we are pleased to report that DASH was one of the charities chosen by the students.

Athena Kung, the College representative on the Durham University Charity Kommittee (DUCK) said; ‘I asked the students within our college to vote for two local charities which they would like to support, and have the money we fundraise as a college go towards, so for the rest of the year, all the money we raise under charity will go towards DASH and another charity’.

So far this academic year the college has had a bake sale and a Movember formal. More bake sales are planned and students will be selling red roses for Valentine’s Day as well as other fund raising events later in the year.

The picture shows the wonderful bakes sold to raise charity funds.
