The Huish Community Project which formed in September is made up of students who actively want to work together to support the community in which they live and engage with issues important to them.
This month the project has launched a raffle in an effort to raise funds for two causes, the Epilepsy Society and the Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support (SARSAS) charity.
Epilepsy Society is the UK’s leading provider of epilepsy services. Their cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, help support those affected by epilepsy in the UK. SARSAS meanwhile provides support to people in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, B&NES, North Somerset and Somerset, who have experienced rape or any kind of sexual assault or abuse at any time in their lives.
If you would like to support the raffle, tickets cost 50p each or £2 per strip and will be sold by the Huish Communuity Project in Reception every lunchtime between Monday 25th and Friday 30th November.
The raffle will be drawn in December with spectacular prizes including; month, week, class and family passes for Blackbrook Gym, an annual Huish car parking pass, a free meal and bottle of wine at Ask Italian and a free makeover and selection of products from the Body Shop.
The Huish Community Project meet every Monday at 11.30am in B16 and it is open to all students wishing to dedicate their time to benefit their community.
