We are pleased to announce that this Friday and next the Library will be teaming up with good causes to raise money for charity. Do you have any outstanding fines on your Library record? If you come in to The Forum Library, Research Commons or St Luke’s Campus Library on Friday 9th November or Friday 16th November we will be inviting you to donate the equivalent amount to charity rather than paying your fines to us. Donations must be cash only; see Library staff for details. We will also be collecting, so if you don’t have a fine to pay but would still like to donate you will be welcome to do so – please see Library staff.
Which charities are we supporting?
Friday 9th November: RAG
As part of RAG Week, on 9th November, Library fines can be donated to the University RAG (Raising and Giving) society’s fundraising campaign. RAG supports a number of local and international good causes including Isaac’s House, Devon Rape Crisis Service, Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children, Force Cancer Charity, Exeter Community Action, The Eddystone Trust and Cancer Research UK. For more information on these worthy causes see the RAG website.
Friday 16th November: BBC Children in Need Appeal
November 16th is Children in Need day and the South West Party is being hosted from the Forum. The Forum Library will remain open as usual throughout this time but we are keen to support this very worthy cause, so all fines paid on this day can be donated instead to the BBC appeal. For more information on the campaign and how the money raised helps to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK see the Children in Need Website.
So please take these opportunities to give generously, support important charity work, and clear any outstanding fines on your Library record!
