No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

This August, BPP Students’ Association took part in a 28-day walking fundraiser to raise money for charity ‘Bloody Good Period’. A charity focussed on providing period products to those in need, whilst also providing workshops to educate and break the stigma around menstruating.

We’re pleased to announce that we absolutely smashed our initial fundraising goal and were able to raise over £489! (from our initial goal of £300!)

In order to achieve this goal, we also held events in support of our August fundraiser including: a panel discussing Period Poverty, a 10,000 steps London walk and a charity bake sale! We’d like to thank everyone who donated and participated in these events, without your support we wouldn’t have been able to reach our fundraising goal.

Lastly, we’d like to give a shout out to our Students’ Association team. To those who tried their hardest to walk 10,000 steps every day for 28 days (a tough goal to achieve in this sitting age!) and to those who assisted in the events we put together in August. It’s been great having such a supportive team - ready to assist with whatever tasks have been thrown at them!

Thank you again everyone for your support, we will hopefully partake in other such charity fundraisers in future!


‘Stop the Stigma: Start the Conversation’ Online Panel

Below you can see a screenshot of our ‘Stop the Stigma: Start the Conversation’ panel conversation which discussed Period Poverty, Sustainability and Menstrual Issues. The panel was hosted by the Student Communications team, Rosie Felt and Falak Ali.

Featured panellists included Heather Moss from leading period poverty charity Bloody Good Period, Meg Gibson from sustainable period products company Grace and Green and Events and Engagement Manager Ellie Ansher from BPP Students' Association.

The panel was an insightful look into issues effecting those who menstruate, it was an informative discussion where audience members were also able to participate in. We hope to hold more panel evens such as this in future!


10,000 Steps London Walk

BPP Students' Association 10,000 steps charity walk took place across London starting from BPP London Portsoken Centre.  It was lovely setting off as a group together, wearing red in support of 'Bloody Good Period'!

Our journey started from BPP Portsoken Centre, to Tower Hill to Westminster (and back!). Our total steps tally went way beyond the limit we had set (21,000!) but we were glad as a team to be able to rack up so many steps for our fundraiser. 

Here you can see our group before we were about to set off, alongside student and Virtual Campus Ambassador Ifti in front of the Houses of Parliament! (INSERT PIC)

Charity Bake Sale!

Lastly, BPP SA team hosted a bake sale in London Portsoken centre. The SA team pitched in together to bake (and bring!) a whole host of yummy goodies to sell. It was a great success and we’re pleased to announce we raised the bulk of fundraising money on this day! Both students and staff were so generous, we thank you again for supporting us.
