Charity Boxing – 23/11/19

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — tmarcu @ 2:40 am

I am taking part in a Charity Ultimate White Collar Boxing event. It trains individuals how to box over 8 weeks before concluding in a fight night in front of over 400 people.

All of the money raised through donations goes to Cancer Research UK. So far 155,313 have taken part in UWCB and with the help of 777,519 donation raised a massive  £17,327,893 for Cancer Research UK.

If you would like to donate to this more than worthy cause you can do so using the link below. I will also be posting updates on how the training is going each week so make sure you check back in every so often.

If you would like to come and support everyone taking part on the night at TALK night club in Southend tickets can be purchased through me or at It is a Black tie event so a great opportunity to get your glad rags on, tickets are £25 each.

I will also be holding a sweepstake where in individuals will pay £3 to pick a boxer. A boxer will then be selected at random and whoever has chosen that boxer will win £30. All other proceeds will  go to the charity. To get involved come and see me in TF.2.33.  The Winner will be announced on the  6th November.

If anyone has any other questions about the event please get in touch.

Collection of confidential shredding

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 6:46 am

Requesting bags and the collection of shredding:

Can staff please put items that they require to be shredded in to the designated shredding bags, the bags can now be requested on Planet.

Security will collect the shredding bags and take them to The Gateway Building loading bay for shredding – but this also needs to be requested via Planet please.

Please note the recent feedback from Estates is that they have collected a lot of shredding bags which have contained items such as empty coffee cups and folders – which are obviously not supposed to be in there.  Please ensure the bags are only full of shredding.

All items of shredding MUST be secured inside a shredder bag.

Green Impact – Recycling Crisp Packets

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 5:39 am


 University staff in The Forum are trialling a collection point (in the tea point) to collect empty crisp packets for recycling as part of the Walkers recycling scheme (  It accepts crisp packets from any brand as long as they’re empty.  When we have enough, we’ll be forwarding them to a local collection point.  After cleaning, packets are shredded and used to make other plastic products such as outdoor furniture, trays and flooring.  If you’re setting up a collection point in your area, let Zoe know ( so we can collate packets before forwarding.
