2015 winners

Best fundraising group

The Freedom Fundraisers – a group based at London Metropolitan University – broke the University of Exeter’s run of three consecutive wins in this category by raising £3,436.52 with a variety of events, including a gruelling tower run and a fantastic comedy night

Best fundraising event

The University of Glasgow’s inspirational Secret Policeman’s Ball was once again the biggest fundraising event of the year. Keep up the good work, Glasgow!

Most regular fundraisers

The University of Buckingham hold several regular fundraising events, including themed AMNESTEAs and a karaoke night at their students union. Last year they donated £1,000 raised through these events.
