Description

Join us for our Sustainable Festive Fayre. The fayre is a great way to get involved in seasonal festivities in a sustainably-conscious way. It will be held in the Activities Zone, in the Students’ Union, and will be open to all staff and students.

There will be stalls on the day selling items for a small donation, including:

Hand-made crafts created by the University’s needlework and craft group

Festive and sustainable bake sales

Christmas jumper jumble sale: Drop off your old Christmas jumpers at our designated drop off points and make a small donation to a new one on the day (more info below)

A tombola with locally-sourced and sustainable prizes to be won, kindly donated by local businesses, including:
- A Thornbridge brewery tour for two
- Two Film Unit semester passes
- 5,000 BetterPoints
- £10 GeniUS vouchers

Money raised from the Sustainable Festive Fayre will be donated to the Desert Garden appeal. Desert Garden is a project led by our scientists who have found a way of growing crops without soil. They have taken this innovation to the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan, where it is transforming the lives of people displaced by war. Now, over 650 families are growing fresh produce, such as tomatoes and mint, in foam from discarded mattresses in place of soil. There will be members of the team on hand at the fayre to explain their work in more detail.
