DUCK exists to help students of Durham University raise hundreds of thousands of pounds each year for local, national and international charities. We do it by running marathons and eating donuts, by trekking to Nepal and cycling across the UK, by stripping off and hitch-hiking to Dublin (although usually not at the same time). Every year, DUCK sends thousands of students to do charitable work around the world, from Jordan to Edinburgh to Paris to Tanzania, and entertains thousands more through events like the famous Grand Durham DUCK race. All of this is made possible through the hard work and dedication of Durham University student volunteers, who will do whatever it takes to raise money for almost 200 charitable causes each year. As well as helping students fundraise towards charities from Save the Children to Help for Heroes, we also run an annual allocations process, through which charities can apply for grants to fund specific projects. This process is how DUCK supports dozens of small, local projects every year, many of whom rely on our annual funding. Find out more about the projects we support on our website: duck.dsu.org.uk.
