YuStart, the first crowdfunding platform at a UK university, turned three in January! Over £140,000 has been raised for student groups since it was set up. Here are a few of our favourites from 2016/17!
THE BOAT CLUB
The Boat Club raised a staggering £3,766 to purchase essential new equipment and compete at the world-renowned Henley Royal Regatta.
AstroSoc raised £2,334 to bring the planets down to Earth with their campus solar system trail, a great addition for outreach activities for local schools. Why not spot them next time you’re on campus?
Thanks to crowdfunding on Yu
Start, The Lemon Press were able to attend the Student Press Association Awards, where they were nominated in the Best Publication category.
30 students from MathSoc were able to attend a conference to boost their employability after raising £630.
Central Hall Musical Society
Central Hall Musical Society made sure that anything went – by raising £1,102 after the venue for their performance of Anything Goes had to be closed for refurbishment.
