Canterbury Christ Church University has raised over £900 for local charity Catching Lives, generated from this year’s staff survey.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Rama Thirunamachandran, presented a cheque for £951 to James Duff, Chairman of Trustees at Catching Lives, an independent charity supporting the rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerably housed in Canterbury and east Kent.
James said: "We at Catching Lives are grateful to the staff of Christ Church for choosing us as the recipient of this money. As an independent charity we rely on donations like this to run our day centre for homeless people. We are proud to have such a strong relationship with the staff and students of Christ Church.
"Many students, both on placements and as volunteers come and help out at the centre and we hope this will continue. Our students are a vital and integral part of our service."
Catching Live was one of two charities supported by this year’s staff survey, along with Newborns Vietnam. In total nearly £1300 was raised for the two survey charities this year.
