Although the 2016-17 academic year isn’t over quite yet, it might be time to start thinking about moving out of your halls of residence. From 29th May until 11th June there will be a chance for students to help equip next year’s Freshers for university life. That’s right, we will be accepting donations for the annually-run Free Shop at Freshers Week 2017. Keep an eye out for the crates that will be popping up in the reception areas of your halls, ready and waiting for your unwanted goods!
The Free Shop is made possible thanks to the generosity of students moving out of halls of residence, who year-on-year have kindly provided us with huge amounts of unwanted items. The type of things that can be donated are pots and pans, plates and cups, etc. We are also able to accept certain food and clothing donations, which will be donated to charity. See below for the rules and regulations on what we can and cannot accept.
Last year’s Free Shop was a massive success, with 179 crates of donated items being collected in total, including 28 crates of food donations, hundreds of bags of clothing and lots of toiletries!
We are after the following items:
There will also be separate containers for food, which will be donated to Fareshare or the Real Junk Food Project Brighton.
Food donations must follow the following guidelines:
