We’d like to say a special thank you to the BA Sport Management students, from the University of Derby

As part of their final study year, the students were tasked with running a series of fundraising events and activities to help raise funds and awareness for Children First Derby.

We were incredibly impressed when, faced with further lockdown restrictions, the students swiftly adapted their fundraising plans and all their events were taken online.

Despite the hugely challenging circumstances, the student groups successfully ran their online events, ranging from quiz nights, and an online FIFA tournament to a Hackathon and a guest speaker event.

And we’re delighted to announce that collectively the students have raised an incredible £1,500 for Children First Derby!

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the students who took part, for your hard work and outstanding efforts. You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and we wish you all the very best in your future endeavours.
