A guilty ex-student has sent an anonymous gift to their former university house in "reparation."
The typed note was delivered to Victoria University's Weir House on Thursday along with $50 in cash.

"I was a student at Weir House back in the late 1970s," read the note.
"I had the occasion to meet with a fellow student last weekend, who was also in Weir House at the same time as me. He reminded me I did pinch some bread from the kitchens on a couple of occasions," continues the remorseful letter.
The writer says they had forgotten about their former bread-stealing days but is not proud of them.
"I would now like to put this right, so please accept the enclosed $50.00 in reparation for this offence."
The letter was posted to the Victoria University Instagram page, saying Weir House intended to put the "reparation" to good use.
The $50 will go towards Weir House's annual fundraising for the Lesley O'Kane Cup an inter-hall award focusing on community contribution.
