What a PANTS campaign!

Liam Howitt, Outreach & Partnerships

Staffs Uni Social Work students collect underwear for Brighter Futures charity.

A group of 1st year, Social Work students (Zoe, Claire, Munsaka, Jodie, Ann Marie, Joanne & Tom) wanted to help the homelessness in the local area that use the services of Brighter Futures represented by Lyn Arnold in the picture above as well as Fern Basnett from the Department of Social Work & Welfare who supported the students during the campaign. It soon became apparent that the item that is least donated is underwear, brand new of course! 

So... the group of students decided to launch a PANTS campaign to collect underwear from students, staff and colleagues across the campus. 

Supported by a fabulous team of lecturing staff and their Students Union 252 pairs of undies were collected! - 198 pairs of women's and 54 pairs of men's. 

Here is Zoe who went a little bit further by completing a sky dive in aid of this wonderful cause! She was fantastically supported by her cohort and other colleagues. 

We are always happy to hear of, and support student fundraising ideas!

Do you want to run your own fundraiser? Then get in touch, and we would be more than willing to support you in your fundraising effort!
