Posts Tagged ‘Hearts and Goals’

This week in the museum’s conservation department we have been challenging ourselves to go the extra mile and raise money both for Red Nose Day and two local charities: Hearts and Goals and Natalie Kate Moss Trust.

Along with other university staff and students, Irit Narkiss and Gabby Flexer scaled the 7 flights of stairs to the top of University Place only to launch ourselves other the edge with only a rope for safety. The scariest part was the first step, after that the thrill and fantastic views made it an experience to repeat! Here are the photos to prove we made it safely to the bottom.

The next challenge was an afternoon tea with cakes baked by the staff inspired by the collection. Special mention here goes to Kate Sherburn with here incredible recreation of a well case for the new Nature’s Library exhibition. Thanks to all those who donated, we raised £114.8 for Red Nose Day!
