    Complete SUSU’s Festive A-Z Scavenger Hunt for your chance to win £100 of Sainsbury’s vouchers! Compete on your own or in a team to get one festive photo for each letter of the alphabet. The sabbatical officers will then deliberate and choose a winner based on the most festive, funny, unique photos.  

    To enter, email your photos to Nicole on vpwelfare@susu.org (you can use WeTransfer to send them in one folder) BY 5PM ON WEDNESDAY 16TH DECEMBER. The sabbs will announce the winner on Friday 18th December. We will then get in contact to discuss the best way to get your vouchers to you. We can also discuss if you’d prefer a different supermarket voucher.

    Please note, you must be available to talk to us on Friday morning to ensure we can arrange your vouchers before we close for the winter break. 

    This list is to give you ideas - you can stick to it entirely or come up with your own! You don’t necessarily need to find the exact item, you could draw a picture, dress up, improvise!

    Every 2 weeks we all meet up and bring a craft with us. Most people tend to also be eating dinner, so dont worry about that! If there are lots of you we will break off into smaller rooms so we can all get to know eachother! Bring any craft along, or none at all! We have had people bring a sticker by numbers, embroidery, knitting, crochet, cross stitch, reparing of clothes, and just mac and cheese! If you are into art too, you can also bring that along! Some regular attendees have a bearded dragon who made an appearance. So if you don't come for the knitting and lovely people, come for Bobo!
