Staff from careers and employability at the University of Chester have been raising cash for a city charity.
Pro-vice-chancellor Dr Chris Haslam joined 24 staff from the department to help tidy up the gardens, clean and redecorate two properties on Ermine Road in Hoole, run by Chester Aid to the Homeless (CATH).
The charity provides supported shared accommodation for homeless individuals who are seeking to resettle in the community.
Last year, 17 staff volunteers from the department decorated bedrooms at Barrowmore, a charity in Great Barrow that offers supported accommodation for vulnerable people with disabilities.
Deputy director of careers and employability Helen Mitchell, said: “This is the second year running that staff from careers and employability have given a day to supporting a local homeless charity. We advise students to volunteer their time to give back to the community, and this is our opportunity to walk the walk.”
CATH operations manager Robert Whittall, said: “I wanted to say thank you to everyone that took part. We were able to move in one person the next day and another by the end of the week into the two rooms that were completed.”
