Oxford City Council is proud to collaborate with the Oxford Brookes, and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) in the Pack For Good campaign. Now in its ninth year, the initiative encourages students to donate their unwanted items at the end of the academic term, supporting BHF shops and their vital heart disease research.

Last year, the campaign in Oxford collected over 4,600 bags of items, equivalent to the weight of 5.31 male elephants, raising more than £65,000! These donations not only support BHF but also fund research and educational programs for students studying heart disease.

Items you can donate

Students, university staff, and Oxford residents are encouraged to donate a variety of items, including:

  • clothing
  • shoes
  • accessories
  • CDs and DVDs
  • books
  • kitchenware
  • small electrical appliances, like hair dryers and straighteners
