UCSA Summer Start-Up

Need a hug?

The UCSA Help team is running the Summer Start-Up event on 23rd February from 10am-2pm. 

This FREE event (held in the Undercroft) is all about getting sorted before Uni gets busy! 

There’ll be a thrift shop (everything is a gold coin donation) and free tables of clothes, household items and children’s items.  There’ll be FREE baking and drinks, as well as caps and jandals.

We'll be there with a stall so come down and check it out.

There will also be:

  • Sewing/mending stations if you need your clothes mended
  • Community Energy Action Curtain Bank
  • Budget advice information and workshops
  • Tenancy Protection Association with tenancy advice/information
  • Massage
  • Spiritual corner for anyone who needs a listening ear
