Oxford Brookes has once again partnered with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to help students and staff to donate unwanted clothes, shoes, electricals, books and other items through the provision of BHF banks across our campuses.

The Pack for Good campaign runs to coincide with when students are moving out of their accommodation. Students and staff are invited to take part this year and donate by placing any unwanted items in one of the BHF banks at our Headington, Harcourt and Wheatley campuses.

Where to donate

  • Cheney Student Village
  • Clive Booth Student Village
  • Crescent Hall
  • Harcourt Hill Campus
  • Headington Campus (outside Clerici Building)
  • Paul Kent Hall
  • Warneford Hall
  • Wheatley Campus

Make a donation

This campaign supports our core values and principles in delivering a sustainable waste management strategy in line with our wider sustainability aspirations. The figures speak for themselves: last year, despite Covid-19, your donations managed to generate a staggering 1,600 bags, worth approximately £22,000 and made up an impressive 80% of the city-wide total for last year’s campaign.

Oxford Brookes is extremely proud of our continuing strong performance and contribution to the ’Pack for Good’ campaign. The City of Oxford’s campaign is one of the largest in the South West Region and has been running since 2012 in collaboration with Oxford City Council and the University of Oxford.

BHF estimates that each donated bag raises £14 in donations. Your donations make a difference by helping to support a range of local services, such as programmes for Heartstart, prevention and care or health at work initiatives:

  • 10 bags could nurse a broken heart by funding a full day’s BHF Heart Nursing Care.
  • 100 bags could help find a cure by funding a young scientist for seven days.
  • 1,000 bags could help 40 young heart patients to gain independence.

Thank you for your support. For more information on British Heart Foundation and its work please visit its website.
