University of Gloucestershire students and staff undertake a huge amount of voluntary work in the local community and further afield.
Bank It is a joint initiative by the university and the Students' Union that aims to capture the volunteering hours carried out by students and staff throughout the year.
Over the past 4 years our students and staff have contributed over 70,000 hours of volunteering to the local community and beyond. During each academic year we aim to 'bank' as many volunteering hours as possible.
Stephen Marston, Vice-Chancellor, says: "At the University of Gloucestershire, we are committed to playing a full and active part in the life of the community. One way of doing this is through students and staff getting involved in volunteering and fundraising activities. They put enormous time, effort and enthusiasm into a huge range of good causes, and we are very proud of the contribution they make."
From volunteering work with Girlguiding groups and coaching local sports teams to being a school governor or giving up time to fundraise for local charities, our students and staff devote many unpaid hours to the Gloucestershire community and beyond.
