Past Events :: 2017

​Information Session: Meet and Greet!

Thank you to everyone who came! This Meet and Greet was the biggest one so far and it was all thanks to both the Captains and Representatives who were able to come together for this event. 

We would love to thank the charity organisations that volunteered their time to come and meet our passionate UNSW Students: 

- Redkite

- Conservation Volunteers

- Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation

- Black Dog Institute

- Thread Together

- Australian Cancer Research Foundation

Red Cross Calling!

Thank you everyone who volunteered at this event! Without your help, we wouldn't have been able to raise over $350 and make a difference in the lives of those who are more disadvantaged than us. This event was a great success and we were able to have volunteers drop in and out at convenient times, which helped cater to the availabilities of all participants. 

For those who are interested in helping out more with Red Cross, Volunteer Army will be doing a Blood Drive in Semester 2 so please tune in for that and volunteer your time!

Bandaged Bear Day!

Thank you for making sick kids smile.

We would like to thank everyone who came by our stall, donated, and or took a photo with us for our Bandaged Bear Day event! We managed to fundraise a successful total of $440.90 for Westmead's Children Hospital, and we could not have done it without your support and the help of our fantastic and dedicated volunteers. Many thanks to our Fundraising captains for organising the day!

Arc-mazing Race!

As part of Arc turns 10, our Arc-mazing race in collaboration with Arc Street Team was a huge success thanks to all our brave challengers, and volunteers who helped to make sure the event ran as smoothly as it did! We had a great number of 30 volunteers and 40 Arc-mazing Race challengers, and we are extremely appreciative of everyone's contributions. Prizes were won, challenges were met, and everyone had fun -what more can you ask?
