Through a range of activities like knitting, cooking, baking and launching social media campaigns, Project Management MSc students raised both awareness and £2,500 for Mind, charity that focuses on people with mental health problems.

As part of the Project Management in Practice module, Project Management MSc students get to plan and execute a fundraising event for a charity. This lets them put their leadership and team working skills to work, while raising money for a good cause. 

This years’ Project Management MSc students selected to work with mental health charity Mind. They worked in smaller groups to raise funds and awareness in different ways, including: 

  • knitting personalised phone covers, socks and cup holders
  • running a five-a-side football tournament
  • cooking, baking and selling foods and sweets
  • launching the social media campaign Dark2Light.MIND

Many thanks to all the contributors, including fellow students and staff members.
