The Endurance Team is open for applications! I’m looking for 8-10 super enthusiastic and hard working people to make our events a success. From running marathons to cycling across Europe, we arrange some of the most challenging events open to Durham students. If you’re interested in event organisation, liaising with charities or supporting people’s fundraising endeavours, this could be the place for you.

This team is perfect for anyone who is enthusiastic about raising money for charity and enjoys organising events! Our events are individual and varied; each requiring lots of hard work and dedication, while also being so much fun to be a part of. Being part of DUCK is social, fun, and rewarding. But of course, the events team is the team to go for!
The DUCK Publicity team allows you to be involved with every part of DUCK as we work with ever team to ensure that news of all the amazing work we do reaches every one in Durham. If you back yourself as social media king/ queen and have incredible caption game, make sure to get involved!

You can get involved in DUCK in your college in 2 ways; as a DUCK rep (chosen by each college’s JCR- ask your college for details!) and in a new role- DUCK Liaison Officer for your college. Each liaison officer will be required to publish on JCR pages and use social media to advertise each of DUCK’s events, expeditions, endurance events and challenges. You’d attend meetings with the other officers and will be informed of all of DUCK’s activities and can feed back to the college charity team. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
Rag Raids needs people who love doing their bit for charity, are creative and enjoy having a good time! Think one BIG social, all in the aid of some amazing causes, which (promise) will be so much better than Klute. We’ll be organising raids in different cities all across the UK, working with charities to take to the street with some amazing people in fancy dress. We also will be encouraging students to get involved, promo is key! Getting more hands on in planning raids means we can be super creative, with all the crazy themes, costumes and, of course, the ‘sesh’.
As part of this team you will help to liaise with all of the charities that we support as well as running campaigns to promote various causes. This will give you first-hand experience in working with such organisations, which is especially great for anyone interested in volunteering or looking to work in the third sector. We will also be organising a charities fair, giving students a great opportunity to network and various charities the chance to share their work. Last but not least, we will be raising money for local charities, something that is so worthwhile and extremely rewarding. So, if you’re passionate, organised and have some great ideas then come and join the charities team. I love it so I’m sure you will too!!
