Charity car wash to support member of campus services staff suffering from brain cancer

Members of staff from all areas of the Division, including members of the management team, donned waterproofs and customised high-visibility jackets and braved the cold to wash cars on Mayor’s Walk. The event was a huge success and the Division managed to raise over £1,300, a fantastic amount of money to gift to Steve who is currently battling stage four Brain Cancer.

The Division has been humbled by the breath-taking show of support from across the University. Richard Gamble, who works in the Campus Services team said "we haven’t done anything like this before on campus and everyone truly embraced it, from the initial idea right through to the event itself. Holding the event on Valentine’s Day was very fitting to the incredible generosity and love shown by staff and students at the University. The enthusiasm on the day created a great atmosphere and a huge thank you must go out to all those who came together to donate their time, money and effort. It really has meant a lot to those close to Steve who has been overwhelmed by the kindness shown by all involved".
