Bristol Students Raise Thousands for SARSAS

//Bristol Students Raise Thousands for SARSAS

The weekend saw the 12th annual FUZE event – an entirely student run celebration of fashion, dance and music.

Over two nights, 1,400 people filled The Passenger Shed for a spectacular show featuring music, dance and fashion inspired by a journey from The Jazz Age to the modern day.

So far, an incredible £18,000 has been raised and donations are still pouring in. The money will go towards helping SARSAS (Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support) launch a helpline specifically for men and boys as well as supporting their active consent campaign, Pause Play Stop.

Ten men and sixty women are raped in Bristol every single week, a hard-hitting reality check that drew gasps from the FUZE audience.

Rowan Miller, director of SARSAS, said: ‘To say we were blown away by the performance would be an understatement. The level of professionalism from the students involved was just remarkable.

“It is a tremendous honour to be chosen as the charity for 2015 – the money they have raised will be invaluable in helping survivors of rape and sexual assault in Bristol.”
