University staff raise funds for Salford homeless charity

Participants in the DSAS Sports Day at the University of Salford

Staff from across the University of Salford have teamed up to support homelessness charity Emmaus Salford with a series of fundraising events.

On Friday 29 June, more than 80 people took part in a University of Salford Sports Day and Summer Fundraiser. 25 staff members from the University of Salford are also preparing for a 25-mile hike on Saturday 28 July, taking in the Three Towers of Lancashire.

Graham Rimmer, DSAS Events Team Leader at the University of Salford, said: “Supporting a local charity like Emmaus Salford has enabled colleagues to give something back to our local community that isn’t just about raising money. DSAS Events and the wider University have come together to show their solidarity to a cause which effects so many people in the area.”

The University of Salford Directorate of Student and Academic Support (DSAS) organises a series of social and charitable events throughout the year. As well as raising money for charities, DSAS events provide opportunities for colleagues across the University of Salford to meet each other and participate in activities outside of their day jobs.

Emmaus Salford was selected as the chosen charity of the year following the nomination and ballot of colleagues in November 2017. The Pendleton based charity supports formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting.

Simon Locke, Community Director of Emmaus Salford, said: “The Emmaus Salford community is extremely grateful to the DSAS team and all those who are involved in fundraising for us this year. The funds raised are extremely important as it not only helps to keep a roof over people’s heads – it provides training and development opportunities for people working their way out of homelessness.”
