But why are we running #buysidebootcamp?

During the course of 2019 and 2020 we became aware, in confidence, of members of our community who were sadly  suffering with mental health conditions and diagnosed with Cancer. I had big plans to launch our #buysidebootcamp in early 2020 to raise lots of money for Mind mental health and Cancer Research UK as I wanted to help and do something to raise much needed funds for our peers and colleagues.  However, Covid19 scuppered our plans :(. As a qualified level two exercise to music professional and understanding how important physical health is for mental health and wellbeing plus I'm never one to give up easily! this bootcamp this #buysidebootcamp will now take place on a Thursday 24th March 2022 at 2pm.


We will also be raising money for Unicef to help raise much needed funds for the children and their families in the Ukraine.

Here's how you can help:

  1. Volunteer to be part of a buy-side only team for the 1 hour boot camp as a team leader. Pledge to raise as much money with your team members.

  2. If you cannot be a team leader then volunteer to participate in the #buysidebootcamp

  3. If you are a sell-side, exchange or vendor, please help us with donations, share the fundraising pages with your network and rally up your buy-side peers and colleagues to join us.

  4. The Buy-side Trading community will provide you with a lovely t shirt and Barry's will prepare a post workout shake free of charge :)

  5. Cheer on your peers and colleagues #buysidebootcamp
