The Right To Play and BUCS partnership began in December 2008 and in its first two years has led to over £400,000 being raised for Right To Play projects around the world.
Cycling from Brussels to London, sponsored swims, cheerleading, football tournaments, and a whole host of parties are just a few of the ways that thousands of students have helped us achieve this total. With your help we are aiming to reach more than the 20,000 children that the BUCS partnership has already made a difference to; please read on to find out more about Right To Play and what you can do to improve the lives of the children who need it most.
It is a relationship rested upon our mutual recognition of sport as fantastic vehicle for improving people’s lives. Right To Play is a humanitarian NGO that works with children and youths in over 20 of the most disadvantaged countries in the world, using sport to transfer lessons of health, education, peace, and unity to communities affected by poverty, war, famine, and disease. We strive to give those we work with the same inherent sporting benefits that you receive at college and university: teamwork, friendship, fitness, and purpose.
