Good for nothing students. We hear it all the time. In the press, from angry neighbours and sometimes, even from other students. But we beg to differ. Look at all of the amazing things you guys have done to make the world a better place in just the last four weeks!

Women’s Rugby

A stalwart among the volunteering clubs, last week Women’s Rugby kicked off this year’s efforts with their Tins for Training day. Members of the club brought along tins and dry foods to be donated to the local Trussell Trust Food Bank. 

Islamic Society

This week ISoc are busy working away for their annual Charity Week. And it’s so far, so good, with a hugely popular launch event and an extravaganza of food, henna and activities on the Quad on Tuesday. Last year, the UCL ISoc alone raised over £130,000 - will they be able to top that this year?

Mexican Society

Over weeks since the devastating earthquake in Mexico, the students in this society have been working to raise money to help disaster relief efforts in the most impoverished areas of the country. Those who have given up their time to hold fundraisers. link up with other UK Mexican Societies and seek out donations, have raised over £13,000 for the cause.


Over 200 of you volunteered to be reps in this round of elections. That’s 209 students giving up their spare time to make things better at UC - whether it’s in your hall, your faculty or your extra curricular activities. Find out which volunteers you chose here.

Somali Society and the BME Network

Put rivalry with Kings aside to organise a joint vigil for the people who tragically lost their lives in the terror attack in Mogadishu, giving students the chance to show their respect and share their grief. 

RUMS Boat Club

The rowing fans over in the medical school aren’t satisfied with learning to be life savers - they recently put down their oars and cycled from London to Paris in just 24 hours to raise money for bone marrow charity, Anthony Nolan. Plus, they smashed their fundraising goal of £3,000 and are still going.
