Roe Rehome

Each term, students produce tons of waste when they move out of halls. A lot of the waste consists of clothes, books, kitchen ware and unopened food. Several of these items are still useable. To reuse or recycle as many of the unwanted items as possible, Growhampton collaborates with different charities to support their great work; this year we've collaborated with Brixton Soup Kitchen and British Heart Foundation. We are looking for a keen student who would like to take on a leadership role in the coordination and development of the scheme.
