Thank you!

We are delighted to announce that on Friday 26 May, staff across the University really did ‘Rise’ to the challenge of baking, donating and eating for a very good cause!

So far, over £400 has been raised from colleagues across the University in support of the Kent Refuge Fund, which supports students and academics forced to flee their homes in search of safety and security who wish to continue their education and research at Kent.

The fund presently supports individuals assisted by two organisations: the Helena Kennedy Foundation Article 26 Project and the Council for At-Risk Academics (Cara).

On behalf of all of those we will benefit from your generosity we’d like to thank all of those who organised, baked, sampled and donated to this fantastic cause.
