The Varsity Charity is chosen by the students – the captains put forward the charities and then a poll is created and shared with students to vote, this year Mind had the most votes

Netball suggested this charity

UPNC - netball Club would like to put forward choosing mind charity for varsity because we feel many students have struggled to readjust to life after lockdowns. We also recognise that university is a big step in people’s lives and mind is a charity which can support people with that step.’
