club charity

Our club charity as chosen by our members is Mind.

One in four people every year will experience a mental health struggle. Mind is a mental health charity providing support and advice to any individual experiencing mental health problems. They connect organisations and people together, creating a safe place to support and educate individuals, schools and employers to improve the services for those with mental health problems.

The charities ‘Local Minds’ initiative ensures that those who directly need help receive specialised support. The local minds network has 125 bases across England and Wales allowing tailored care and assistance to meet the needs of the community and individuals they help.

As a large diverse sports society, who is connected with other universities and societies in the community, we want to ensure that those struggling with mental health are able to feel supported and safe. Therefore, all the money we raise throughout the year from our charity events will go to towards supporting Mind.

Charity Round up



Throughout the year Leeds swimming and Waterpolo have completed many charity events raising money for great causes such as MIND, RNlI, Alzheimer’s research, kidney research and more. From charity swim galas and polo matches to growing (very minimal) facial hair, we’ve had more than 100 members get involved in different events. These events have also helped raise awareness for important topics including breast, prostate and testicular cancer awareness and mental health awareness which is so important for everyone.


Our biggest success came from the Leeds Half and Full marathons. With 9 members running the half marathon and 2 completing the full, together we managed to raise a whopping £4265 for 3 charities which is amazing. Huge congratulations to all runners, tremendous effort and a great achievement.


Thank you to everyone who participated and donated to any events throughout the year




In 2019 a group of our members, along with some other University of Leeds students, climbed the Yorkshire 3 peaks in order to raise money for our club charity. All of our participants managed to complete the feat in under 10 hours.
