INTO Giving Raffle

What is a raffle?

In Britain, a raffle is often used as a way of raising money for good purposes.

People buy tickets with different numbers, some of which are later chosen to win prizes. The money raised goes to a charity.

INTO Giving raises money to help some of the world’s poorest schoolchildren- for example, £1 can pay for a week’s worth of milk for a child at
our Mercy School in Thailand; £4 could pay for heating at the Jusoor School each day, helping Syrian refugee schoolchildren keep warm.

£1 for a ticket, £5 a strip of tickets. You can buy tickets from around INTO Manchester- look out for the signs but we have them in the Learning Centre and can accept cards as well as cash!

Starts: Wednesday 15th November;  Ends: December 8th;  Draw Date: December 15th

Note: Over 18’s only may take part

Prizes include: gift vouchers, hampers, hotel stays holidays, tea for two at The Ritz, Apple iWatch Series 3, 10.1inch Google Android Tablet PC……and a lot more!

Access to the Univeristy of Manchester Main Library

Access to the University of Manchester library

We are now giving out forms for access to the University of Manchester library for Foundation, International Year One and Pre Masters NCUK students*

Any student who wants to fill in the form MUST come into the Learning Centre with their INTO ID card when you fill in the form as we need to check your details are correct.

No ID card- no form!

Do not just go down to the University library without filling in a form first and getting an emal from the University library- you will be turned away.

*University of Manchester Pathway students should see their tutor about access.

Time is Changing!

And so we begin our new term.

The warmest welcome to all our new students. This is  our favourite time of the year as we get to meet you all.

We have information on interesting places to visit in Manchester-  plus magazines, nespapers, DVDS – and all the textbooks you will need to succeed.
