St George’s University London DermSoc have been crowned Battle of the DermSoc Champions for the second year running. The team raised a fantastic £6,947.67 which they achieved through organising activities such as lectures, surgical skills for skin course, twitch streaming gaming tournament, homemade takeaway, and an art sale. 

The British Skin Foundation’s Battle of the DermSocs 2019/2020 fundraising initiative, which sees dermatological societies across the UK compete against each other in order to win three different prize categories, raised an outstanding £12,556.26 for skin disease research.

Barts and The London DermSoc scooped the 'Best Social Media' award for their fantastic Instagram account, @bldermsoc and 'Most Creative' award for their Barry's Bootcamp event and Olivia Knowles' 3000 burpees in 30 days challenge.

 Kelly Taylor, Events and Community Manager at the British Skin Foundation said

"A huge thank you to all teams involved in BOTDS 2019/2020, despite challenging times teams pulled together and raised a fantastic amount of money for the charity. A special thanks to St George's University London and Barts The London who both worked extremely hard throughout the year to come up with interesting and exciting activities as well as beautifully created and engaging social media content. Both teams were highly motivated from the start of the academic year and their hard work really paid off."
