The BIG Give is here!

Posted on Posted in Events

You have probably noticed us blogging/Facebooking/Tweeting about it for some time now…but the time has finally come. It’s the start of The BIG Give!


Can you imagine if students and staff at the University of Southampton could raise £22,000 for charity in just one week? By each giving just £1, we can make this happen – and we have lined up a huge number of ways for this to be done, from donating when you pay for something at the tills around SUSU, to dedicated BIG Give events where entry/tickets will be £1, or simply just dropping £1 into a shaker or a bucket around campus over the week. You can even donate online.

So instead of spending your £1 on a drink or some nibbles this week, why not spend it on one of the following? Tweet us @SUSURAG with #theBIGgive and let us know how you decide to donate!
