Last year, the Bristol student community sadly lost one of its members, Matt Ward, a third-year medicine student and member of the Christians in Sport group. To help raise money in memory of their friend, the group covered 367.8 miles and have raised over £400 for Samaritans.
The University of Bristol’s Movember effort has passed the £40,000 mark. Together, individuals and societies have been raising money for men’s health and are well on track to meet their target of £50,000.

On Sunday, the University of Bristol Modern Jive Society, along with three University dance societies and Mevans Dance, raised over £800 in a charity danceathon. The money will go to Bristol Black Carers and NHS Charities Together.
