Supporting students through festivities

30 November 2011

The festive season will soon be upon us and the 2011 University Christmas card, showing Main Building in the snow is on sale now across campus. The University’s second calendar is also available for 2012, featuring stunning images of campus life from Varsity to our world-leading research.

A donation of 10p from each card sold and all profits from the calendars will go to supporting students in financial hardship at the University through The Cardiff Fund. The Cardiff Fund gives support by helping hundreds of students in financial need to funding various aca­demic and extra-curricular projects across campus. It supports the University’s activities in four broad areas: Unrestricted Gifts, Student scholarships & bursaries, Sport & Students' Union Facilities and Libraries & Campus Facilities.

The University Christmas cards cost 40p each and calendars cost £3. Both are on sale at Graphic Services outlets throughout the Cathays Parks campus.
