Make packing easier by donating unwanted stuff.

Last year, your previous community officer, Tom Bowden, ran the CLEAR OUT Campaign to make packing easier and get you donating unwanted stuff to help the local community. Working together with The Welcome Centre, The British Heart Foundation and various halls of residence; Huddersfield Students’ Union is supporting you to give back.


Why? Well, every single year nearly 10,000 of our students move in and out of Halls and student accommodation, and with that comes a lot of unwanted items. Therefore, the aim is to give you guys the opportunity to donate your unwanted items to those in need rather than them going straight in the bin!

So, what can you donate?
