Welcome to the Durham University Charities Kommittee, also known as DUCK!
DUCK is Durham’s version of a university RAG, which means we are here to support all students and staff in fundraising for charities in the North East, nationally and internationally. We offer extraordinary opportunities to meet new people through our events, explore the world through our expeditions and test your endurance levels to the limit in our challenges. What makes this all so fantastic is that whilst doing this we raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities across the globe!
2016/17 with DUCK
This year was phenomenal for DUCK! DUCK raised over £200,000 for a range of charities on a local, national and international scale, with £24,000 of this going through our Allocations Process. This provides grants for local charities in the North East. And for the first time ever, the split of money between charities of different focus needs (children and education, health, animals, and community outreach) was largely influenced by the entire student body.
Become a member of DUCK, so that you can find out all about the events we run throughout the year and information on how to sign up to them, join here.
