Get your Christmas presents wrapped and support a good cause

30 Nov 2016

University staff are offering to wrap your presents in aid of the Emergency Student Hardship Fund

Hate wrapping for Christmas? Get all the work done for you AND support a really good cause. Your fellow University staff are offering to wrap your Christmas presents in their lunch hours, in exchange for a donation to the Emergency Student Hardship Fund.

This Fund makes grants to students who find themselves in unexpected financial hardship through no fault of their own. It can be the difference which allows a talented student to stay on their course, and complete their studies at Manchester. With no dedicated government support for this area, the majority of the Hardship Fund comes from the generosity of donors to the University.

Wrapping will take place in The Christie Building on Monday-Thursday lunchtimes between 12 and 23 December.


If you would like to have your presents wrapped, please book a slot by registering an approximate number of presents at:

There is a suggested donation of 50p per present, which you can throw in a bucket on the day. Wrapping paper will be provided, but you're welcome to bring your own if you'd like us to use something specific.
