This end of term, donate and Save lives.

Over the years, University have generated over £1.5m from items sold in local british heart foundation shops, proving that campuses are strong allies against heart disease. Let's keep on saving lives, together. Here's how:

What to donate:

Clothes, electricals, pots and pans, cutlery, cushions, quilts, pillows (if in good condition), food (non perishables)


Fill up your bag and head to the Students Union to put it in one of the collection bins. At the end of the summer term we will have a team of student volunteers ready to come to your local area and pick up your donations.
