On 17th-21st February 2020 Bath Spa Students' Union will be hosting Student Volunteering Week, a national campaign held across the UK. The week is all about celebrating student civic action in the local community and on campus and promoting the fantastic benefits that you as students bring to the Bath community.
There are many ways that you can get involved in the week from micro-volunteering to short one-off activities, to finding out how you can get involved in volunteering longer term.
We will have local charities and organisations coming on to campus and smaller microvolunteering activities in the SU bar and Locksbrook.
Below is the schedule for the week:
Tuesday 18th February- Snowdrop planting at Sydney Gardens, 14:00-16:00
Interested in gardening and being outside? We are teaming up with the Sydney Gardens project during our student volunteering week, to offer students the chance to get involved with planting snowdrops in Sydney Gardens!
