#NSMW17 is the week 6th to 8th February, and events on the themes 'Waste not, Want not' will be occurring in Universities all around the UK. The Student Funding Unit and DUSA are jointly running a community event for you to come along to in the afternoon of Wednesday 8th February.

The theme of ‘Waste not, Want not’ will be represented by the following:

  • Big Energy Saving Network - the best deal for your utilities (bring along your utility bills or log in information for advice on better deals);
  • Build your own plant - plants and seeds courtesy of DIG;
  • Charity Shop map‌ to the charity shops located in the city centre;
  • Student Funding Quiz and freebies – take part in our Student Funding Quiz - top 25 students will get a £10 book token each!;
  • Make your own draught excluder – if you have an old pair or trousers, bring them along so you can make them into natty draught excluders! I you don't, we'll have a stock that you can transform! (no sewing required!);
  • Sewing workshop – bring along a shirt that has lost its button (with the button), and we’ll take you through how to sew it back on!, or, if a hem has come down, we’ll show you how you can rectify this - learning new skills!
  • Soup packs - (to give away!) - recipe included!
  • Free Shop - excellent opportunity to see what items you can pick up for your flat, or yourself - for Free!

We’ll be on the Campus Green (weather permitting-otherwise Level 2 of DUSA) from 12 – 3 pm.
