What a term it has been for UWLHC charity! This year we have chosen to support two amazing charities.
The first is our national charity Teenage Cancer Trust (https://www.teenagecancertrust.org/) and the money we raise this year will be going to providing young people with essential support throughout their cancer journey, before, during and after.
Our second chosen charity is Coventry Cyrenians (http://www.coventrycyrenians.co.uk/) and the money we raise will go towards giving those in Coventry and Warwickshire who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, individualised support to promote...
We kicked the new year off, with the Charity Talent Show returning in 2019 at Altoria with all the freshers from UWLHC and UWMHC getting involved to show us their many talents. While the competition was tense, in the end the Men’s 4s came out on top with a hilarious dance routine! This night raised a phenomenal £126 for Alzheimer’s Research, one of our chosen charities of the year and showed that our freshers are certainly not only talented on the hockey pitch!
UWLHC also continued the February Family Challengewhich started for the first-time last year! We had 9 hockey families who di...

On the 23rd June, UWHC held their annual summer Hockey Charity Tournament.
The sun was shining and we had a massive turnout with over 20 teams from a variety of different sports clubs and societies including netball, swimming and even postgrad medics to name a few!
There were 3 prizes up for grabs on the day: the Cup Prize, the Plate Prize and the best dressed. The winners of the Cup Prize were Teletubbies. The Plate Prize was won by Mixed Hockey 2 and the best dressed team which won were Made in Porec in line with our TV shows theme!

At the beginning of February we were treated to a fresher-led night of entertainment at Altoria as the charity Talent Show returned for 2018! UWLHC 2s came 1st with their wild take on the hakka, accompanied with some classic chat, musical renditions from Kanye to the Lion King, raps and Bill and Ben the flowerpot men went rogue… This night with the Men’s club raised £150 for Mind.
During Warwick’s RAG Week our outgoing (in both senses of the word) President Kingy got royallypied in the face in aid of Sense, Guide Dogs and Fairy Bricks. This was great fun for all involved especially as we h...
During pre-season, the exec met one weekend with Warwick Volunteers in order to clean up the canal in Leamington Spa, pulling out all sorts of things from mopeds to loaves of bread! This was a great opportunity to get hands on with looking after our local environment.
This Thursday saw our ladies get stuck into some rugby at the WWRFC Charity Tournament in aid of the CRASAC - Coventry Rape and Sexual Assault Centre. Many of our girls had never played before but the weather was glorious and it was a fab event with lots of support.
On the 1st of March 2017, 16 members of UWLHC took to the street around campus to participate in our Run For Your Buns event in aid of our charity CoppaFeel!. The plan was to take on a short 3km around campus wearing our bras and underwear. We took the boob as well for maximise impact and started on our journey around uni.
I had said that it would be gently jog or brisk walk at a push, however someone let Molly Adkin and Charles head to the front and the pace was increased to a frankly ridiculously fast jog. Jeeezh Molly, save it for the Half Marathon (oh yeah, we’re back this running malar...
