British Heart Foundation set to benefit from unwanted student belongings from ‘move out’ campaign

A campaign which raised over £150,000 last year for the British Heart Foundation is gearing up for another year as it looks to support students moving out of the city for the summer, helping raise vital funds for cardiovascular research. 

The Pack for Good campaign – spearheaded by the Student Community Partnership, a joint venture between the University of Bath, Bath Spa University, and Bath & North East Somerset Council – provides a helpful way for students from Bath’s universities to get rid of any unwanted items when preparing to leave for the summer.

As part of the campaign, 10 temporary British Heart Foundation (BHF) donation banks have been situated across Bath until mid-July including a number on both universities’ campuses.

To mark the start and raise awareness of the campaign, members of the Student Community Partnership, took to the streets of Bath today (Monday 9 April) door knocking in areas where high numbers of students reside.

Representatives from both universities, Bath & North East Somerset’s Waste Collection Services and Conservative Councillor Bob Goodman joined forces to promote the campaign as well as offer waste and recycling advice.

Last year, the highly successful campaign raised over £150,000 for the BHF with over 10,000 bags of unwanted belongings donated including shoes, clothes, CDs, DVDs and bed linen.

Kalyn Mallard, Community Liaison Co-ordinator, Student Community Partnership, said: “With recycling already increasing in Bath, the Pack for Good campaign offers another opportunity to recycle during the student move-out period and we will be encouraging students to make the most of it. The SCP would like to thank everyone who is helping to co-ordinate the campaign and making it possible.”

Councillor Bob Goodman said: “The Council is working hard to reduce the amount of waste it sends to landfill and students can help by recycling their unwanted belongings. The Pack for Good campaign proved extremely successful last year and I’d encourage students heading home for summer to make the most of the donation banks across the city.”

University Campaign Executive Team Leader, Jessica Burlinson at the BHF, commented: “We’re looking forward to working alongside the University of Bath, Bath Spa University and Bath & North East Somerset Council again to encourage students to donate their unwanted goods to us. This scheme will be a huge help to our shops in Bath and I’d hope as many students as possible get involved and support the new scheme. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer - you can join the fight for every heartbeat by having a clear out and using the new facilities to donate your unwanted items.”
