We are the Charities and Communities Coordinators, supporting Norland students and staff in charitable and community activities.
It’s exciting to think how much potential we have, with all our skills and knowledge, to support and contribute to the local and wider community. Last academic year (2018-19), over £6,500 was donated by Norland to charities through our fundraising!

Minerva’s Owls of Bath
In the summer of 2018 we participated in the Minerva Owls of Bath sculpture trail. Our owl, named Emily after our founder Emily Ward, was designed by a local artist named Vera. Emily had a prime spot throughout the summer, positioned outside the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, where she was one of the main attractions on the trail. In October, we were delighted to secure Emily at the charity auction, which raised a total of almost £140,000 for Bath-based charities. We’re delighted that Emily has now permanently nested at Norland College.
Norland’s donation to the Royal United Hospitals Bath (RUH)
Norland staff and students were delighted to donate a baby bath and stand to the Antenatal and Postnatal Ward at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.
