This is for students who want to get involved in helping plan or run the on-campus fairs from September 2022 onwards.
Craft and Food Fair volunteers needed for September 2022 onwards
· Would you like to be involved in setting up and running the next Craft and Food Fair in the Students' Union?
· Would you like to help shape and develop the project further, and help keep it a regular fair for students and staff?
- Would you like to set up our NEW monthly hot food fairs?
- Or are you just interested in helping out on the day?
Then we need YOU!
In 2017 we secured funding from NUS Student Eats to establish a Farmers' Market in the students' union and we have so far run several successful markets on campus. It is a place where students and staff, as well as members of the public, have the opportunity to buy fresh, locally produced food. In 2018 we added craft stalls and have now established a popular Craft and Food Fair which we hold 3 times a year.
There are a number of different roles you can take on such as research, planning and promoting the market, liaising with stallholders, organising finances, and ensuring the smooth running of the market on the day. We also have our Student Section - so you could help source and book student businesses to attend the fair.
This type of role would suit someone looking for an exciting project to volunteer with, who likes to make their mark, and has strong organisational and team work skills. In return you will be a vital part of the team and gain lots of transferable skills which will inevitably help your employability after university.
Please note the next Craft and Food Fair will take place at Freshers 2022 so you should able to help for at least part of this.
You don’t need to be available for the whole planning process to be involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and sign up here if you just want to be involved on a one-off basis or just help on the day!
If you would like to get involved register here now and we will contact you with more details.
Remember: all SU volunteering projects count towards the Volunteering Award so this is a great opportunity to boost your volunteering hours!
