About our Charity Partners

We work with our charity partners to raise funds and redistribute food to the people who need it.

The British Heart Foundation

Items donated to the British Heart Foundation donation banks go directly towards raising vital funds for lifesaving research through the sale of the items in British Heart Foundation shops.

Since 2012, donations from students have helped raised the equivalent of £2.4 million for the British Heart Foundation, who have funded a range of schemes, training initiatives and lifesaving equipment in the local Manchester area over the last 12 months including:

  • 52 Heartstart schemes
  • 530 defibrillators
  • 350,892 free heart health resources
  • 277 organisations CPR trained
  • 26 British Heart Foundation Retail Shops

White Rose 

We are especially grateful for all the generous donations of clothing and accessories that made it possible for White Rose to continue working towards raising those vital funds for the Aegis Trust.

In 2020, donations prevented 9040kg of clothing from going to landfill and
prevented an estimated 32,544kg of CO2 emissions

Manchester Central Food Bank

Our partner food charities help tackle food poverty by taking surplus food and redistributing to the people who need it most.

The Manchester Central Food Bank provides emergency food for local people in crisis. Food items donated by Manchester Met and the University of Manchester students are provided to this charity. Over the last two years, the equivalent of 4,000 meals have been donated.
