British Heart Foundation
Loughborough University began working in partnership with The British Heart Foundation in 2013 for our annual end of year clear out which runs at the end of the summer term when students vacate their halls of residence.
Each year we now donate around 3,000 bags of reusable items to The British Heart Foundation through the permanent banks on site and the end of term clear out.
Each bag on average is worth an average of £14 to BHF
Each bag on average weighs 8KG
Out total contribution so far (Dec 2020) works out at over £400,000 generated for BHF and over 250tonnes of waste diverted from landfill (or incineration for energy recovery) since the partnership began. Out target is to reach £½ a million contribution by the end of 2021.
