It’s In The Bag!

The ATC community has rallied around the Share the Dignity campaign which provides for the needs of vulnerable women. A special cause was launched this year in the lead up to Christmas called “It’s in the Bag” to extend the gift of giving to others. As a result, we are pleased to announce that over 105 handbags were donated as well as many items of personal hygiene to fill these bags. The library team extend their thanks to the female staff at the College as well as members of our extended community who have supported us. We hope to have made a positive difference in the lives of women less fortunate than ourselves this Christmas.
