The Guild has a number of student groups which focus on the environment and issues relating to sustainability. To find out how to get involved follow the links below and become a member!


Junkbusters is a joint project between your Guild and the University. Every year, we hit the streets of Selly, collecting your unwanted items and donating these to the British Heart Foundation; making a massive difference to people’s lives.

We operate in March and June.

This June we will undertake doorstep collections, and have drop off stations in various parts of the local area.

Check the Community Wardens twitter feed for more info closer to the time: @ilovesellyoak Or go to for more info

If you would like to volunteer, drop us an email
