Many have helped to partake in fundraising, including #shavetosave in which Newcastle students have taken a razor to their locks.

Harry and Xav are climbing the three peaks this summer, and gave away a prize bottle of vodka to the participant who could most accurately guess the number of Tab condoms in the bucket. You can donate to them here.
