Thank you, Dave, we fully appreciate your views on Amazon and will make no attempt to defend them. Our decision to use them for this appeal is purely to benefit our students. If we are to give students the freedom to choose something they like with their vouchers, Amazon would of course take preference due to their vast product offering. Amazon is named as a suggestion in the project detail but a decision to use them for these vouchers is not set in stone. Logistically a cash gift is not possible under the current circumstances, but we fully intend to explore opportunities next year that will benefit both our students and support local businesses in Swansea, which is exciting.

I hope this small donation makes some difference.

Happy to support a good cause although I thought twice given the vouchers being for Amazon. Personally detest this dominant organisation which often pursues dubious strategies - currently selling anti-vaxx books and impervious to criticism. Why not give money? Would NOT support further appeal which rewards Amazon.

A very good idea I hope it is a great success.

Everyone should be free to learn and progress their studies without discrimination/abuse.

What a fantastic response! you've helped us to blast over our initial target in under an hour! thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

Thank you very much John!


A worthy initiative at this difficult time. Well done Swansea University!
