Senior staff groups raise hundreds of pounds through The £10k Challenge

Over 170 alumni, staff, students, and friends of the University are doing a range of exercise and other activities for The £10k Challenge, which ends on 19 March.

Hundreds of people have generously donated to the challenge and the £10,000 fundraising target was reached on day one.   

Funds raised will go to the Mental Health Appeal, launched in 2020 to raise money to support the services on offer to students at Loughborough during these difficult times. 

Participants represent a cross-section of the Loughborough community, including senior staff from the Academic Leadership Team, and the Associate Deans for Research.  

Both teams have raised more than £1,000 each, with a couple of days left to complete their challenges. They’re neck and neck on day 8 of the ten-day challenge, so which team will come out on top?
