Bucket Collections: From Pennies to Pounds

Bucket collections are always a great way to get people on board and you’ve kept up the great tradition. Taking to the streets in 43 city centres across the UK, you’ve been calling on the public to join us in action. Here’s Liverpool John Moores University out on the moo-oove in their local city centre!

You’ve been taking fundraising to new crazy limits this year. Who’d have thought you could sell a banana for £3,000? Well, at UCL you can.

Meanwhile, folks at Exeter University have also topped the scales, selling a painted canvas for a whopping £2,500. Good job all round!
