Arriva Midlands assisted hundreds of students from Leicester’s De Montfort University (DMU) who headed out across the city during the university’s biggest-ever one-day volunteering event last Friday (1 March).

The event, ‘A Day for Leicester’, saw 600 students from DMU’s Faculty of Business and Law volunteer or support at community events on 41 different projects in community centres, neighbourhood centres and libraries across the city.

To ensure that all students wishing to get involved were able to travel freely across the vast range of worthwhile initiatives taking place, Arriva, offered all student volunteers completely free travel throughout Leicester for the entire day.
