Medway Gives Back: November 2018
Kent Gives Back

We are looking for Kent alumni, students and staff based in Medway or the surrounding areas to volunteer for the Paper Hearts Project on Saturday 17 November.

- The Project - 

The Paper Hearts Project aims to foster social unity and community inclusion through the shared goal of achieving a Guinness World Record of a display of 60,000 origami hearts. The heart reflects the research interests of the University of Kent, Medway, Sport Studies Society from which this project is led in terms of health and sport.

The hearts will be made from 7.5cm square origami paper and full instructions will be given. The folded hearts will be collected from groups in boxes by the 17 November, affixed to recycled cardboard backing tiles, then arranged on poster boards at the Student Hub on Medway Campus. The aim is to exhibit and finalise the record attempt in February, to which participating organisations and the general public will be invited.The project's aim is raise awareness and funds for Cardiac Risk in the Young, and The Molly MacLaren Foundation.

- Our part - 

We will be joining other community groups in the area to build the display of the hearts in the Deep End at Medway. This event is part of our Kent Gives Back series which allows alumni all over the world to work together for a local community cause and help people and projects that matter to them. This not only helps the community but also allows our alumni to network and get to know their fellow alumni.

To take part all you need to do is register here and then meet at The Deep End on the Medway campus, Gillingham, Chatham ME4 4GW at 10.00 on Saturday 17 November.
