The Guild of Students has teamed up with the University of Birmingham for a second year running to deliver the Junkbusters initiative. The junkbusters, a team of student volunteers, will collect unwanted items from homes within in Selly Oak; these items are then donated to the British Heart Foundation (BHF) – the nation’s heart charity. Last year, a staggering 1,128 bags were donated raising in excess of £9,000 for BHF. To see pictures and information from last year click here.
The Community Wardens, students employed by the Guild of Students to make the local area safer, cleaner and greener, will post bags through student letter boxes from Thursday 14th March. Students are encouraged to fill these bags with their unwanted items: clothes, shoes, CDs and DVDs, kitchen accessories and crockery, stationery, books, small electrical items in full working order e.g. kettles, lamps, hairdryers, audio equipment, and toasters (no rice cookers).
