Law students gain recognition for their fundraising efforts

Law Students award

Richard Osborne and Nathan Collins, who study law at the University’s Treforest Campus, have recently been awarded by the Faculty of Business and Society in recognition of a donation they made to children’s hospice Tŷ Hafan.

They were presented with certificates by Janine Griffiths-Baker, Dean of the Faculty, and Donna Whitehead, Head of the School of Law, Accounting and Finance, for participating in the St David’s Day Market in Pontypridd, where they donated 10% of all proceeds to Tŷ Hafan. For the market the students set up a stall selling a range of jewellery products that were hand-made by Richard.

Speaking about how he got into jewellery making, Richard commented: “I was looking for a hobby and being creative with my hands, I decided to watch some YouTube videos on the techniques needed for making jewellery, as well as the different materials that can be used. For the stall I created a variety of jewellery pieces such as hand woven adjustable bracelets, stretchy beaded bracelets, necklaces using silver plated, gold plated, and bronzed chain, as well as a variety of women’s earrings.”

Reflecting on the whole experience, Richard added: “Nathan and I found the day selling at Pontypridd very enjoyable. I will be planning to do more stall selling over the next few years and I intend to continue to raise money for Tŷ Hafan.”

Donna Whitehead acknowledged that: “Richard and Nathan demonstrated considerable initiative when selling items in the St David’s Day celebrations. Their hard work really paid off and it is wonderful to see them donating some of their profits to Ty Hafan. Congratulations to them both on behalf of the School of Law, Accounting and Finance.”
