UTS BSoc Trivia Tuesday
The School of Life foundation is a not-for-profit organisation working in rural Uganda. They build schools to provide communities with quality education. This trivia night, hosted by comedian Artie Gallagher, not only raised funds for this foundation, but also was barrels of fun for the attendees! We raised an incredible $688.50 for this worthwhile cause.

One act can make a massive difference to another person and create an ongoing cycle of change.
