Second-Hand Book Sale
Donate your used books and support our fundraising efforts!
Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th February, Crescent, Warrington campus

To celebrate #SustainabilityWeek we’ll be hosting a second-hand book sale at our Warrington campus on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th February! Staff and students are encouraged to bring their used books to the Marketing Office (A109) at Warrington campus prior to the event. All monies raised will be donated to the college food bank. Cash only.

#OneStepGreener - Buying a used book reduces the number of new prints, eventually reducing paper usage and helping the environment. We aim to reduce carbon emissions in all possible ways, and every one of us should endeavour to reach that goal. Your part can be played by reusing the books and reducing the printing of new books.


Quality Second-Hand Clothes Sale
Donate your used clothes and support our fundraising efforts!

Tuesday 14th and Thursday 16th February, Crescent, Warrington campus

On Tuesday 14th and Thursday 16th February, we’ll be hosting a quality second-hand clothes sale in aid of #SustainabilityWeek! The sale will be held in the Crescent at Warrington campus. Please donate your second-hand clothes to the HR office (A101), Warrington campus prior to the day. Quality items will be resold and other items will be recycled. All monies raised from the sale will be donated to the college food bank. Cash only.

#OneStepGreener – Not only does buying second-hand clothes help to reduce textile waste, but it also helps to reduce the demand for new clothes. Do your bit and support our second-hand clothes sale by donating or purchasing an item.
