Don't Ditch It - Donate It
Simply by donating items to our collection points, that would otherwise be thrown out, the project is benefiting the campus community AND the environment. Donation points can be found near the Chaplaincy Centre, on Furness Avenue, Pendle Avenue, outside Barker House Farm and, for students living off-campus, at Chancellors Wharf.
