University of Bolton raises funds with cut-price meals

Generous staff and students at the University of Bolton have raised £1,700 for Bolton Hospice by donating money collected from £1 meals sold to students during the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions over the winter months.

The University catering staff prepared hundreds of healthy meals for students, which were subsidised by the University, and all the money collected has been donated to the Hospice.

The University’s Head Chef, Darren Booth, handed over the latest cheque for £1,700 to Bolton Hospice’s Director of Income Generation and Communications, Alice Atkinson.

“It means so much to us to have the support of the University of Bolton during these challenging times for us all. I want to say a huge thank you to Darren, his team and the students for their wonderful support of Bolton Hospice - this generous donation will enable us to provide care and support for another local family when they need it most.” - Alice Atkinson, Bolton Hospice’s Director of Income Generation and Communications.
