Giving Tuesday – get involved with swap shop and CPR training

21 Nov 2018

Find out about some of the fantastic activities taking place on campus in support of #GivingTuesday on 27 November

Giving Tuesday 2018

On Tuesday 27 November, the world will celebrate #GivingTuesday, an international day to do ‘good stuff’, to recognise what is already being done and to encourage people to consider giving time, money or supporting a worthwhile cause.

Across the campus there will be plenty of opportunities to mark Giving Tuesday and discover new ways of giving. Why not use your lunch break to pop along to one of our many events to see how you can do your bit?

SwapShop – Renold Building, 11.30am-2.30pm

Giving Tuesday will see the return of the Swap Shop! Once again, we are looking for quality unwanted clothes, shoes, books, gifts, toys and homeware. You can bring your items on the day or can drop them off in Sackville Street Building C44 or Renold Building B28 from Monday 26 November.

Entry for the Swap Shop is £3 or £1.50 if you have items to swap. Money raised will go to The Proud Trust and leftover items will be donated to Barnabus.

To raise even more money for The Proud Trust, there will also be a cake sale in Renold Building. Donations of cakes (homemade or shop bought) are welcome, or just pop along to buy yourself a sweet treat!

HeartStart CPR training – Barnes Wallis Building, 12.15-2.00pm

Staff and students can also learn some emergency lifesaving skills in one of the HeartStart CPR training sessions, running at 12.15pm and 1.15pm. To sign-up for one of these sessions, register via Eventbrite.

For students: Making a Difference Fair – Renold Building, 11.30am-2.30pm

The Making a Difference Fair will be showcasing a variety of organisations which students can support or volunteer with. Some of the groups and initiatives represented are ReachOut, LINK Good Neighbours, Barnabus, The Proud Trust, Green Impact, Peer support, Volunteering, Antibiotic Guardians, Robogals and blood and organ donation.

Students will receive more information about all of all of the activities listed above via MyManchester but please also encourage them to attend.
