The Big Spring Clean gives students the chance to participate in a variety of different projects, either as individuals or as part of a club or society. Students have painted, cleaned, litter picked and painted murals to keep the local area looking clean and fresh. The Big Spring Clean enables students of Royal Holloway to provide support for community projects in Egham, Englefield Green and the surrounding area. It is also a fantastic way to get involved with volunteering as a club or society.

Volunteering Week 2014

Volunteers' Week 2016 takes place at the start of June, which will see Royal Holloway enter its second decade of hosting an annual week as part of national Volunteers' Week. As most exams and coursework deadlines are over, why not do something worthwhile whilst having fun in the sunshine? Each year hundreds of students contribute over one thousand hours to serving the local community. Community Action works in partnership with the Students' Union, Royal Holloway Sport, Voluntary Support North Surrey and a wider range of local charities and community organisations to offer a huge range of projects for students and community volunteers to get involved with.

Sign up now to be involved, or if you are part of a club or society then why not get your whole group involved?
