Development and Alumni Relations Office Just Do It! once again

Following last year’s successful project planting a community orchard, the Development and Alumni Relations team once again braved the spring elements last weekend for another local volunteering project through SheffieldVolunteering’s Just Do It! scheme.

This time the project was based at St Marie’s RC primary school in Fulwood - painting murals and giant board games in the school playground. The team had great fun, and discovered hitherto unsuspected artistic skills as they painted a Simpsons wall mural, a Noughts and Crosses board, and a giant Snakes and Ladders board!

"Our student volunteers do so much for the local community - so the team at the Development and Alumni Relations Office thought 'Let's give a hand too'," said Miles Stevenson, Director of Development. “And we were delighted to discover our own hidden artistic talents!"
