Adele, activities officer, is excited about celebrating this week:

 "I am a huge supporter of this BUCS girl can week. Nothing should stop women from being active, and certainly not the fear of judgement. It doesn't matter how sweaty you get, how unfit you are or what your ability is all that matters is you taking part. Women can and with pride."
