Well, what a busy first semester the Newcastle Uni Boob Team has had! If you haven’t heard about our work – firstly where have you been?! But I’ll give you a quick run-down of what we do…we’re a group of students who work for the breast cancer charity CoppaFeel! to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer to all guys, gals and non-binary pals on campus.
During semester 1 we’ve been busy getting all of you to know what to look out for with breast cancer and fundraising so CoppaFeel! can continue their vital work. We’ve been working around the clock hosting four bake sales in November and two successful club nights with Stage One Events and Goldflake Events with the legendary Tiger Wednesdays, and our fab pub quiz at Bar Blanc where many of you battled it out for the boob knowledge crown! We’ve managed to raise £478.30, and the lovely staff at Santander will be matching donations to help us raise even more vital funds for CoppaFeel!

However, if you think we’re done shouting about boobs you’re very wrong. Already in semester two, we’ve managed to be ratified as a society and attended Refresher’s Fair where we spoke to loads of you about getting involved in our boob checking revolution!
Friday 16th February… We’ve teamed up with the Newcastle University Kings Dodgeball Club to put on the legendary CoppaFeel! Boob Ball tournament.
Throughout February, we’ve got lots of exciting events coming up. During the first week of term, we hijacked the uni gym by placing out boob checking stickers and shower hangers in all the changing facilities to get all of you sporty people checking your chests! Next week all you first years will be able to get your hands on our shower hangers. Keep an eye out for more information from your hall reps who will be distributing them, so you can all be armed with the correct information on what symptoms to look out for with breast cancer.
We’ve also been scurried away planning our most exciting event yet happening on Friday 16th February… We’ve teamed up with the Newcastle University Kings Dodgeball Club to put on the legendary CoppaFeel! Boob Ball tournament. We’ve got ten teams lined up ready to battle it out for the title of Boob Ball Champions and a £30 voucher from the North Terrace Pub. For all of you wanting to be involved, we’ll also have lots of stalls on and Krispy Kreme’s on sale to keep you fuelled for the tournament! We’ll then be moving on to the North Terrace Pub where we’ll be hosting a pub quiz with some great prizes to win! Check out our Facebook event for more information!
