Bath City helps students donate over 200 bags of equipment to charity

Students in Bath have donated over 200 bags of clothes and kitchen equipment to local charities during their end of term move-out.

For the month of June the Student Community Partnership (made up of Bath Spa University, University of Bath, Bath College, their Students’ Unions, Norland College and Bath and North East Somerset Council) worked with Bath’s Third Sector Group (3SG) to offer two drop-off locations for student donations: Oldfield Park Baptist Church, and Bath City Football Club (BCFC), where a team of volunteers collected and stored the donations.

“BCFC are thrilled to partner with the universities to enable the redistribution of no longer needed equipment to local charities,” said Joy Saunders, BCFC’s Community Director.

Charities that are benefiting are Bath Rugby Foundation, Julian House, Developing Health and Independence (DHI) and the British Heart Foundation. Read more
