The Christmas Gift Tree is now officially up at Nuneaton Campus!
For those of you that missed this last year and are curious to know what it is all about; The Christmas Gift Tree is decorated entirely with paper baubles made from old recycled books; each bauble has a grocery item printed on it and participants are 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 on the Nuneaton Campus site.
Glebe House is a unique facility that offers students a range of services that include support for young carers and parents, confidential appointments with a range of external specialist agencies, washing and laundry facilities plus much more.

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.
Thanks to your generosity the Library has raised £115 for Glebe House. This money is from sales of our Christmas decorations, Christmas raffle and money donated to the Library book exchange. Our Gift Tree was a big hit again this year and there was lots of food and other items left in the hamper under the tree.
The hamper and money were presented to Glebe House staff this morning. Thank you everybody, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The Library handmade Easter gift pots have raised £10.50p for Glebe House. This amount added to the £86.55p from our recent cake sale means we have raised a total of £97.05p. A big thank you for your generosity and support. Happy Easter.
Yesterday students and staff could be seen tucking into cakes in the Library(and it was all for a good cause). The delicious cakes were made by Library staff and some of the College cleaners, they were being sold to raise money for Glebe House.
Thanks to your generosity we raised £ 86.55p . Thank you very much for your support, we hope you enjoyed the cakes.
