Your help makes a big difference!

 
Last year students raised over £31,052 by donating unwanted clothes and bric-a-brac to the British Heart Foundation.
 
Over 2218 bags were collected, which is equivalent to 17.7 tonnes being diverted from waste streams, saving 180,581kgs of C02 gas emissions and the weight of 3 elephants going to landfill.
 
Your generosity also meant over 100 duvets, pillows and sleeping bags went to a local animal welfare charity and over 60kg of unopened non-perishable food was donated to a local foodbank and a homeless charity.
