Free Shop for students - pots, pans and more...

Arriving from overseas? Need the basics for your new flat?

The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Students’ Union bring you a new concept in retail therapy.

What is the Free Shop?

The Free Shop concept has been devised especially for students arriving in Sheffield who need to get set up quickly with the essentials to cook and eat or to get some warm clothes for the impending English winter.

The Free Shop aims to help students arriving from overseas with limited space in their bags. It's also for any student needing to get set up quickly and finding the cost of new stuff breaking their budget in the first few weeks of term.

....................................................................................................................

When will the Free Shop take place?

Shop One: Thursday 14 September 2017 at Uni Central

Sale starts at 14.00pm -16.00pm

Shop Two: Wednesday 20 September 2017 at the Edge Dining Room, Endcliffe, just off Fulwood Road, Sheffield S10 3ED

Sale starts at 12:30

....................................................................................................................

Many of the products have been donated by students leaving Sheffield at the end of their last semester and no longer needing all the stuff they have accumulated over the year. Other items have been sourced from surplus catering equipment at University catering facilities.

It all comes under the banner of a wonderful recycling and re-use scheme that runs every year in Sheffield called 'Donate Don’t Waste' or DDW for short. It encourages students to pass things on for reuse by local charities as well as the Free Shop for fellow students.

The shop is being run by student volunteers who will help share the stock with as many customers as possible. Running during Intro Week at two venues, on different days, there should be opportunities for everyone who needs something to get some essentials.

We look forward to seeing you all there.
