A second year Contemporary Art student has braved the shave as part of RGU Uni Boob Team’s fundraising effort.

Courtney Barr shaved off her hair on Tuesday at Mr. Dunn, Belmont Street, to raise awareness for the Breast Cancer Awareness charity 'Coppa Feel!' after smashing their £200 target.

Coppa Feel is the only breast cancer awareness charity in the UK aimed at young people. Their main aim is to educate young men and women about the importance of being breast aware as early as possible.

RGU Uni Boob Team’s Leader, Shae Myles said: “The Uni Boob Team's mission is for everyone to be in with the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer.”

“We exist to encourage you to check your boobs regularly, educate you on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and empower you to seek advice from a doctor if symptoms persist.”

 

CoppaFeel are always looking for new ambassadors to join the Uni Boob Team and help spread the word. If you would like to help support their cause, get in touch via @rgu_ubt on Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. You can also check out our previous article about RGU Uni Boob Team here.

You can also donate via their crowdfunding page.
