Student volunteers spread Christmas joy

In our 50th anniversary year, University of Kent students are doing even more to support charities and local volunteering organisations.

In the countdown to Christmas, Kent Union has donated an amazing total of 49 Christmas shoeboxes packed with gifts to be given to disadvantaged children through Smile International.

Many kind donations of presents by students, staff, societies, sports teams and local businesses were received and 40 Kent Union volunteers joined the ‘Give Volunteering a Go’ sessions to decorate and pack the shoeboxes.
