The bags were prepared as part of the college’s drive to provide students from a care or looked-after background with as much support as possible, especially given that fewer of them have been on campus due to the coronavirus restrictions.

A total of 430 bags were handed out by the college with a value of over £13,000, which were then filled with items such as notepads, pens, post-its and sanitary products for female students.
