Old College Fundraiser

A 24-hour virtual fundraiser for the refurbishment and maintenance of Old College. This is a £30 million project that will redevelop the building into a cultural, learning and enterprise centre for Aberystwyth, with the hope that it will attract many new visitors to Aber in the future.

The event will be structured as a single collective push across a 24-hour period on the anniversary of the opening of our university, 16th October.

This event is being run by our clubs and societies, who have all sorts of ideas they want to try out.
