FIT Lab Charity Events
What, Why and How?
The FIT Lab has recently started its own charity committee which will henceforth organise fundraising events within the department to raise money for registered charities.
After raising £22 for the mental health charity Mind (www.mind.org.uk) with our lab advent calendar over Christmas, we decided that we would like to become more involved in fundraising for good causes.
Each month we will be picking a new charity to support. There will be a box on top of the coffee machine in the FIT Lab if you want to donate. We will also be organising fundraising events throughout the year which we hope you will all consider supporting.

Ongoing EventsTuck Shop: In the lab we have a selection of candy, chocolate and snacks available for purchase - we've undercut the vending machines and all proceeds go to the charity of the month!
We are always looking for new ideas and volunteers to raise money - you don't have to be a member of the FIT Lab - just pop in and see us if you want to get involved or donate!
