Principal’s Charity 2022/23

It was our intention that the Principal’s Charity for 2022/23 would be nominated and chosen by staff.

However, with the ever-increasing cost of living impacting on staff and students alike, we have taken the decision for the Principal’s Charity to support the college’s Food Pantry project and Clothes Swap in 2022/23.

Further details regarding events to support the Principal’s Charity in 2022/23 will be shared over the coming months. However, in the meantime, if you would like to donate to the Food Pantry, the following items would be gratefully received.

Clothes Swap

The next Clothes Swap will take place on 14 November for staff and students in the Heart Space.

The Clothes Swap is part of our sustainability agenda where both students and staff are invited to donate and/or bring clothes, shoes, and accessories promoting upcycling and a sense of community.

If you have any clothes/shoes/accessories which you would like to donate to the Clothes Swap, please take these to the Library or contact your area’s LEAP.
