Every year, the club raises money for a charity proposed by a club member and voted for at the AGM. The proposer then supports the fundraising activities through the year.
2020 Charity: BEAT – Beat Eating Disorders
Beat is the UK’s eating disorder charity. The charity began in 1989 as the first national charity for people with eating disorders. Use of their helpline has increased by 80% during lockdown due to the additional stress and anxiety caused by the consequences of Covid-19.
The charity exists to end the pain and suffering caused by eating disorders and is a champion, guide and friend to anyone affected, giving individuals experiencing an eating disorder and their loved ones a place where they feel listened to, supported and empowered.

So far, BRJ has raised nearly £4000.
