Alumni in China donate face masks to care home partner

Categories: Salford Business School

Twenty-four alumni from China have donated 2,000 medical grade face masks to a residential care home in Bolton. The alumni, who all graduated from Salford Business School between 2004 and 2015, decided to donate the masks due to their fond memories of studying at Salford and their continued loyalty to the University.

The School of Health & Society facilitated the donation and put the alumni in touch with The Old Vicarage Residential Care Home in Bolton, a partner of the University.

“This is an amazing example of our alumni having a life-long connection with the University of Salford and the local community," said Elena Nikoulina,  Head of International Recruitment at The University of Salford. 

"The University is extremely proud of its international graduates and grateful for their support and generosity during these unprecedented times. In supporting this initiative, the alumni community is not only maintaining the connection to the local area but also inspiring the next generation of international students.”

The face masks were gratefully received by residents and staff and they thank our alumni in China for their generous donation.
