Want to get involved and raise awareness on Campus? Why not try doing this in a fun way and for a cause that is so close to many hearts – meet the Uni Boob Team!
‘We are the Uni Boob Team here at Uni of Liverpool representing CoppaFeel!, which is a charity aiming to eradicate late detection of breast cancer; with 1 in 8 women getting breast cancer in their lives, and nearly 2000 discovering it at stage 4 we aim to get younger people to check their boobs/pecs on a monthly basis, to help to find signs and symptoms earlier, get them checked out and potentially save lives.’
‘We’re a really recent society, only starting last year. However, we raised a whopping £2,286 last year alone to go towards spreading the awareness of breast cancer!’
‘Joining the Uni Boob Team here at Liverpool has really helped me to increase my confidence (there’s nothing you can’t do after walking around campus in a giant boob) and to do something really worthwhile whilst here- it really fits well around my studies as monthly missions are suspended in January and from April onwards. Not being sporty, I felt there wouldn’t be many societies that I could really get stuck in with, but the Uni Boob Team has totally proved me wrong- the bake sales, raffles and collaborations with other societies allowed me to get really involved and get to know so many other volunteers’ – Charlotte, Secretary of CoppaFeel
