Shwop at Work
We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone across campus for the overwhelming support we received for Shwopping. You'll be delighted to know that we shwopped 47 bags in just 3 hours. For Oxfam, that's the equivalent of one weeks' worth of donations via clothing banks - which is absolutely fantastic!
It was a real tribute to the Sustainability and Facilities teams at the University of Leeds who made sure that all of the logistics worked perfectly, sourced volunteers and helped create a buzz across campus. And it's been an excellent demonstration of the partnership with M&S and how well our shared values can really help us to achieve more!
We'll be able to tell you more about how your donations have helped Oxfam soon, but in the meantime here's a special thank you message from Joanna Lumley, our Shwopping Ambassador.
