This Christmas, the University is launching an appeal to help the residents of Fortalice, a refuge based in Bolton which provides a sanctuary for women and children escaping domestic abuse.

After speaking to Fortalice staff as to the type of gifts that we could provide, it was suggested that vouchers would be the most appreciated. Therefore, we are aiming to raise enough money to buy vouchers for each woman and child in the refuge at Christmas, for them to spend on whatever they wish. If you would like to help by giving a donation of money (no matter how small), collection boxes are located at Main Reception, in the Student Centre, and at the reception in the Queen’s Specialist Building. Donations can also be left in the Vice Chancellor’s Office. Shortly before Christmas, vouchers will be purchased and presented to Fortalice for distribution.

Please note that the closing date for donations will be Friday 15 December.
