Yesterday, the Union of Students hosted a charity sample sale with beautiful, brand new clothing from designer brand, Ted Baker.
Within the first few hours, over 70% over the stock was sold - with students and staff finding stunning items suitable for work, interviews, graduation, weddings and weekends.
At the end of the day, all stock bar a few items had gone so the decision has been made not to run the sale next week.
A grand total of £4,700 was raised for Derby Care4Calais to fund education tools, packs of clothing, phones and SIM cards for new arrivals who are sent to Derby, often with nothing but the clothes they were wearing when they crossed the border. The Union wants to extend a HUGE thank you to all students and staff for their support - your help and donations will make a massive difference to the lives of refugees and their start out here in Derby
