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 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. For more information on Mind please visit their webpage:
