Coppers for Zambia

Did you know that copper is Zambia’s biggest export, and much of their economy depends on it? To help with our Zambia fundraising, we are running a ‘Coppers for Zambia’ competition amongst Schools and Units at the University of St Andrews. From now until the middle of May staff are kindly donating their spare coppers (or silver and gold coins too 😉 in the collection tubs around the University.


There will be a mid-competition copper count before the grand totals are revealed on 9 May. Check back here to see how your School or Unit is faring! We’ll turn the coppers into batteries (not literally!) that will give Kazemba School electricity and make a huge difference to the lives of the teachers and pupils.
