British Heart Foundation Campaign
The University of Wolverhampton and the British Heart Foundation are joining forces to help students reduce the waste which we send to landfill. Through donating unwanted items students can raise vital funds for the charity and really make a difference!
Where are the bins
3 clothes and book banks are located at:
Walsall campus - Student Village WS1
City campus - North Rd Halls WV1
Telford campus - Shifnal Rd, Priorslee, TF2 9NN
While there are 4 large internal containers located at:
2 at City Campus at the Randall lines halls of residence
2 at City Campus Students Union
Halls of Residence
Along with the large banks which are located with close proximately to the halls of residence at each campus, student union officers will be visiting early April to deliver donation bags to each block, making the transition of items to the bank itself even simpler.
Those students who live in rented accommodations within Witmore Reans- you can also get involved! during another of our ALL OUT DAYS on the 23rd April which raises awareness of personal safety in the local area, we will be distributing British Heart Foundation donation bags and informing all local residence of an extra collection service running parallel to recycling which will collect the bags right from your very door step !
What can go in the banks and bins
· Furniture and small electrical items
· Clothes for women, men and children
· Shoes and handbags
· Accessories (including ties, belts and jewellery)
· CDs and DVDs
· Children’s toys
A message from your Welfare Vice President – Gemma Wright
‘From the heart for a heart!’
‘As a student I know first-hand how much waste we can generate over the course of our studies. I had piles of unwanted books and mountains of fancy dress items and accessories. (A true insight into how I send my time!! ha-ha) Knowing that I have facilities pretty much on my door step to help me remove the clutter is brilliant but most importantly my trash can become treasure.
Let’s recycle our clutter to provide vital funds to the charity for ground-breaking research and health initiatives.
