Nottingham Trent Students’ Union collected more than 50 gifts for 3 local charities, which will be donated over the Christmas period.
Working in collaboration with NTU, the SU took part in the Collect for Christmas campaign that encouraged staff and students alike to donate gifts for the elderly, homeless and underprivileged children in Nottingham.
From warm clothes and luxury food items to gifts for children, NTU students and staff at the SU donated across all three campuses, helping to make a big difference to those in need this Christmas – thank you to everyone who took part!
Staff members also came to work dressed in their festive best last week as part of another local charity appeal organised by Gem106 FM.
The radio station’s Cash for Kids campaign raises funds for disadvantaged children across the East Midlands and more than 18 members of staff took part, swapping their everyday clothes for Christmas jumpers and making donations to the appeal, raising a total of £50 towards the Cash for Kid’s charity.
Kate Hissett, NTSU’s Volunteering Coordinator who helped to organise both events, said: “It was great to see staff at NTSU come together for such good causea. Christmas is a time for celebration but it’s important to remember those who are less fortunate this festive season and I’m delighted that we were able to do that as a team.”
