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:
