We're delighted to announce that Sociology has raised £50 for the 'first fiver' appeal at York.
As you may have seen in the media, the #firstfiver is a campaign to encourage people to donate their first new plastic fiver to a cause of their choice; a really simple and effective idea. We have joined the University of York's appeal to donate our first fivers to the University’s Equal Access Scholarship scheme.
This was set up to enable refugee students to study at York, and is already supporting two undergraduate scholars (with a third to arrive later this year). We're very pleased to be able to contribute to this scheme.
