Balls, bakes and bright pink!

October is breast cancer awareness month – and it's been a busy month here at Nottingham with a whole host of events to raise money for our breast cancer research. Thank you to everyone who has taken part – from the ultra-glamourous Boobie Ball to Think Pink Day to bake sales across the University community. 

We've now raised over £550,000 for our breast cancer research as part of Life Cycle 6 – but there's still a long way to go to reach our £1 million target and we need your help to close the gap. Visit our Life Cycle 6 website to find out more about how you can help. 


In the meantime, take a look at what we've been up to this month... 

The Boobie Ball 

A great night was had by over 170 guests at the glamorous Boobie Ball earlier this month. Held at the stunning Colwick Hall, the evening was a huge success and raised over £4,000 for our research!

Think Pink Day 

Our campuses turned bright pink for Think Pink Day, with staff hosting a whole range of fundraising activities from bake offs to book sales. Even the Trent Building got in on the action, proudly wearing pink for the occasion!
