NTU Burlesque Sports Club Have Raised Over £1,000 For Charity Through Performances

The Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Burlesque Sports Club have raised over £1,000 across their shows this year for three different charity organisations.

NTU Burlesque is a sports club featuring cabaret-style dance, including optional strip teases. The club holds three performances during the academic year, with all of the proceeds going to charity.

During their first show, the club raised £133.60 for Women’s Aid, a domestic abuse charity.

In their second show, they raised £812.62 for Humankind, a charity committed to reducing deprivation and exclusion.

For their final performance, NTU Burlesque raised £680.33 for Bloody Good Period, a charity that helps deliver menstrual products to people who can’t afford them.

Across the year, NTU Burlesque has raised £1,626.55.

Former President of Burlesque Chris Coletti, 21, had this to say about their success:

“For four times in a row, NTU Burlesque has won the award for highest amount of money raised for charity each year as a sports club and even after the COVID-19 absence Burlesque still holds up that standard”

Former Burlesque Social and Well-being Secretary Georgia Nolan, 21, added:

“We are so proud of everything we’ve been able to achieve, we’ve put on some fabulous performances and have managed to raise money for charities our members have voted for throughout the year!

“Our most successful show raised over £800 for a charity close to one of our members and it meant so much to all of us to be able to give back,”

Fashion student and member of NTU Burlesque Katie Bearcroft, 22, said:

“Having the chance to turn all your hard work into something bigger than the sports club is incredibly special.

“I’m honoured to have been a part of something that not only impacts us as Tigerlilys but also the wider community.”
