Vice-Chancellor's Charity of the Year
Each year, a charity is elected by students and staff to be the Vice-Chancellor's Charity of the Year. It allows the University to help fundraise for the charity that has been elected therefore helping towards a good cause. Now in its fourth year, the charities that have so far been included are: Beacon of Hope, Wales Air Ambulance, Royal National Lifeboat Institution and, the present charity, Mind Aberystwyth.
The purpose for the Vice-Chancellor's Charity of the Year is to:
- Maintain and strengthen the link between the University and the community
- Increasing the public awareness of local and national charities
- Providing a focus for community fundraising and charitable donation
Our current charity is Mind Aberystwyth. Mind Aberystwyth provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. It campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding, as latest figures show that every year one in four people experience a mental health problem.
