raised of £1,000 target by 13 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to reimburse precarious and postgraduate colleagues for funds lost due to the cancellation of the 2020 BSLS conference

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The BSLS executive committee and conference organisers have taken the decision to cancel our 2020 annual conference at the University of Sheffield due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know this will be very disappointing, but given ‘social distancing’ measures, international travel restrictions and, above all, concern for the health of our members, this is a necessary step for us to take.

The executive committee recognises that some delegates (particularly the unwaged and those not affiliated to institutions) may be unable to reclaim some of their expenditure, and may not be covered by travel insurance. If you are in more fortunate circumstances and able to make a donation, please do so here. Any funds we raise will be distributed among delegates according to need. If you would like to lay claim to some of this compensation, please email the communication secretary:

Any excess money raised here will be used to fund extra bursaries to future BSLS events.

    Thanks to everyone who generously donated to this fund! As I announced at the BSLS AGM on Friday, your kindness exceeded the needs of our ECR and postgrad community - everyone who applied will be reimbursed, and the extra funds will support bursaries at future BSLS events (including next year's conference at Edinburgh Napier). The kindness and warmth of the membership has always been one of the great strengths of the BSLS. Thanks again for your support!
