Following the success of last year’s Giving Tuesday, as a charity we're delighted to announce we are once again taking part in this global day of charitable giving. On Tuesday 3 December you can get involved with Giving Tuesday at Solent and make a real difference.
Last academic year over 400 alumni, staff and friends supported Solent students through donating money to fund 17 Local Student Bursaries and giving over 300 hours of volunteering.
This year, for every one Local Student Bursary available, over four students applied, meaning many students are still without the support of this essential bursary.
Before 3 December
