Radar met with the RGU Uni Boob Team (UBT) to get an update since their interview last October to see how the team is doing.

RGU Uni Boob Team is a group at RGU who represent CoppaFeel! (the only breast cancer charity in the UK purely about raising awareness and educating young people about being breast aware and checking your body.) This student-led group was formed with the aim to make people more aware of the risks of breast cancer through raising awareness around campus, at events and more. However, as of March this year the Uni Boob Team, unfortunately, has to come to an end.

The UBT, who have been part of the CoppaFeel! family, have not been able to find anyone to take over the running of the group. A handful of the current members will instead continue to raise awareness and money for the cause, as part of a smaller creative collective of Gray’s students, “Miiilk It”. They will be creating and selling a variety of products; including fashion and stationery. RGU Uni Boob Team Leader, Shae Myles, a Contemporary Art Practice student at Gray’s explained to Radar that “this group will allow us to continue fundraising for CoppaFeel!’s amazing cause, but it’s really unfortunate that no one has been able to take over.” The items they create will be available on their Etsy page http://www.etsy.com/uk/ shop/miiilkit

If you would be interested in applying for the position of UBT team leader, please contact Shae by email at 1601884@rgu.ac.uk. The role consists of promoting the campaign, running events, reporting back to CoppaFeel! and managing the volunteers.
