The campus event included activities such as a cake sale, face painting and a guess the number of chocolates in the tub competition. A total of £85 was raised.

Animal care training officer and event organiser, Laura Stone, said: “The World Wildlife Fund was chosen as the organisation to receive our donation due to their support of a host of animal and environmental issues which are not only close to my heart but also important to many of (BMC’s) animal care staff and students.

“These issues include saving animals from extinction, anti-poaching programmes, addressing the unsustainable consumption of certain natural resources, and addressing climate change. We felt that the World Wildlife Fund was fully deserving of our donation, and we are thrilled to have been able to raise £85 for this organisation.”
