For Roses 2019 we are using our biggest platform to raise awareness of the positive link between sport and mental health and to fundraise for BEAT and Student Minds. Sporting rivalries aside, this is a joint campaign between York and Lancaster students to make sure that we are working as #OneTeam to end the stigma that surrounds mental ill-health.
Mental health is an issue close to the heart of every student in the UK. Too many times at University we see those we love and cherish living with mental ill-health and not being able to seek the support they need or speak out about the challenges they face.
We will be fundraising before, over, and after the weekend to make sure that we raise as much money as possible. This is the perfect opportunity to make a positive difference by supporting two fantastic charities.
We welcome donations of any size, online before and across the weekend. Alongside our fundraising, we are welcoming the local York community to come to our campus, to enjoy the fixtures and family friendly events across the weekend.
We look forward to sharing Roses 2019 with you and working to end the stigma surrounding mental ill-health.
