From Dundee University Students' Association ...


Dear friends,

This year’s Raising and Giving initiative, organised by Dundee University Students' Association in partnership with Cash for Kids to the benefit of the Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia Lodge charity, has launched a custom made line of Christmas cards (see designs below!)

The cards can be bought in shops on campus, ordered online at www.dusa.co.uk/shop the price of £4 per pack of 6 cards. Bulk orders over 5 packs can be made by emailing vpsa@dusa.co.uk, and we will ensure their delivery to your location.   Birthday cards are also available for purchase at £6 per pack of 10 or at £1 per individual cards. For your convenience, the designs have been attached to this letter. You can also buy the cards on campus at the Premier shop or the Library CafĂ©.

Leading on from last year’s campaign, DUSA plans to run a series of events to raise money for the Tayside Children with Cancer and Leukaemia Lodge Charity for their project to construct a fully equipped holiday home for children suffering from cancer or leukaemia and their families to enjoy in between treatments.  TCCL is a children's cancer and leukaemia charity, who work closely with the oncology staff at Ward 29 in Ninewells Hospital. TCCL has been serving the Tayside and North East Fife community since 1994.

DUSA’s partner in fundraising for TCCL Lodge is another well established and recognisable Tayside charity, Tay FM’s Cash for Kids.   Cash for Kids will be working along DUSA and TCCL Lodge to popularize the cause of TCCL Lodge.    In addition to that, Cash for Kids will be a platform for fundraising for TCCL Lodge with 100% of the funds raised going directly towards the Lodge project.

For more information, visit our website. We would greatly appreciate if you share that message with your students and colleagues and thus help us spread the word as this is a unique community effort!

You can engage with the event further, by

-    Being a volunteer
-   If you are an artist, donate a piece of your creativity to be auctioned off at   the final Gala night that will conclude RAG week
-   If you are also an entrepreneur or participate in a business, to donate prizes or vouchers for services towards our bank of raffle prizes and auction items.

We are grateful for your time and consideration in advance!

Kind regards,
Anna Dimitrova
