Thanks for taking the time to visit the DUCFS JustGiving page.
Durham University Charity Fashion Show is the largest student-run fundraising event in the UK. In 2018 we raised £106,000 for Mind, with over 2,000 student attendees. In 2019 we are breaking our own records to raise money and awareness for this year's charity; EJF, the Environmental Justice Foundation.
This year's DUCFS recognises the need to fuse the core aspects of ‘charity’ and ‘fashion’. As a fashion show we have a responsibility to confront the environmental and humanitarian issues that surround the fast fashion industry. EJF believes that environmental security is a basic human right. They investigate environmental and human rights abuses through various platforms, such as film.
Awareness and activism are fundamental to DUCFS 2019. We aim to promote this spirit of environmental activism amongst the Durham student population and further afield, through a year-long charitable venture. It’s not just a fashion show. It’s a movement, which together with EJF will get people thinking and talking about environmentalism and sustainability.
If you would like to donate money to this incredible cause please do so through this JustGiving Page. 100% of the proceeds go directly towards the Environmental Justice Foundation, so they can continue their work to protect people and planet.
