Since 2013, Sheffield students have donated 66,071 bags of useable items which is the equivalent of over £925,000 worth of donations. It is hoped that this year’s donations will see that figure reach the £1 million mark.
Donations made by students reduce the waste produced when they are moving out while also making a positive difference in the wider community.
The University of Sheffield has many research projects in collaboration with, and funded by the British Heart Foundation.
Examples of these projects include developing new ways to image the lungs, creating a new virtual tool to detect heart patients needing stents, and research into uncovering the mechanisms behind pulmonary arterial hypertension; working towards a cure.
