Donate your Library fines to Comic Relief on 15th March

Here in the Library we’re always keen to support good causes, and to work with our students, which is why we’re  happy to be teaming up with RAG to help raise money for Comic Relief.

Friday 15th March is Red Nose Day, a national fundraising appeal fronted by various celebrities including Lenny Henry, Jason Donovan and even Miss Piggy! The money raised will help a variety of good causes at home and abroad, for example: supporting victims of domestic abuse and young people living on the streets in the UK, or providing communities with fresh water and life-saving vaccines in Africa. Check out the Comic Relief website for more information.

RAG are running various events during Comic Relief week to raise money for Comic Relief – see their Facebook for more details – and as part of their campaign we’re offering you the opportunity to donate your Library fines to the cause.

On Friday 15th March, rather than paying your fines money to us we will be inviting you to donate the equivalent amount to RAG’s Comic Relief appeal.  Donations must be cash only and made in person at one of our Library desks – we regret that we cannot accept charity donations via credit card or using our online payment system.  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.

We hope you’ll take this opportunity to give generously, support worthy causes, and clear any outstanding fines on your Library record!
