Wear Red for Ruby on 1 Dec

You may be aware that the University of Greenwich is holding a charity fundraising day on Monday 1 December at the Medway campus Blake Building in support of the Wear Red for Ruby campaign.

The main theme of the day is for everybody to wear something red. It would be a good idea if University of Kent staff could also get involved too.

However, we also need your help. One of the highlights of the fundraiser will be wet sponge throwing. We’d like to give our students the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to throw wet sponges at staff for a nominal charge.

If you would like to volunteer your services for this wonderful and very worthwhile cause – could you let us know. If you have any other ideas for fun activities please contact us:

We are raising as much money for Ruby Laura Young, a 2 year old girl from Rainham, Kent who has been diagnosed with an aggressive childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma.

She is currently receiving treatment but there is an 80% risk of relapse. If she relapses, there are no further treatment options in the UK. The Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance UK (NCCA) are helping Ruby’s family and other families to raise vital funds to pay for further treatment in the United States for children with Neuroblastoma.
