Christmas Hamper & Money For Glebe House



















Once again you have all been very generous. We have put together a Christmas food hamper and raised money for Glebe House.  This is a fantastic facility offering support to our students.

We have raised £62.03p; some of this was from sales of our handmade festive decorations and some was from donations to our book exchange.

Our Gift Tree was once again a big success. People could take handmade baubles from the tree and in return donate the item printed on it (biscuits, chocolate etc) to the hamper.

Many thanks for your generosity and support.

The Library team wish all students and staff a very Merry Christmas.

Library Gift Tree

For those of you that gift tree - blogmissed this last year and are curious to know what it is all about:

The Christmas Gift Tree, was decorated entirely with paper baubles made from old recycled books; each bauble had a grocery item printed on it and participants were asked to take a bauble of their choice for their own tree and in exchange place the appropriate grocery item in the hamper under the tree.

The hamper is then sent to Glebe House, which is based at the college’s Nuneaton campus.

The Gift Tree is now on display in the Nuneaton campus library. Why not get involved and help someone else enjoy Christmas this year?

Library raises money for Children in Need

Hi, I’m Cara, the systems librarian. This is the story of my happy mistake…

The day started much like any other – my alarm went off and I dragged myself out of bed. I was due to spend the day working at the library at South Leicestershire College, our partner college. Over there, staff are encouraged to wear pyjamas for Children in Need. I thought I’d join in with the spirit of things and left the house in the morning wearing my jimjams. Due to a last minute staff shortage, I didn’t quite make it to SLC and instead spent the day in the Nuneaton library at NWHC. Over here, Children in Need is celebrated in different ways, meaning I was the only person in the whole college wearing pyjamas. I’m sure you can imagine how I felt – pretty silly to say the least!

With the help of Louise from the reprographics department, we managed to turn my embarrassment into a positive. We found a collection tin and whipped up a poster. By the end of the day, £13.90 had been donated in the library. Plus, my story generated more than a few laughs throughout the day.

It was lovely the way people pulled together. A big thanks to everyone who donated money. £13.90 and a lot of laughs – not bad for a mistake, eh?!
