Spend Healthy. Be Healthy

It is National Student Money Week campaign (3rd – 7th February 2020) and we have some NUSU recipe cards to help you to spend healthy and be healthy. We also have lots of exciting events happening during the week in Luthers where you have the opportunity to win yourself a free basket of shopping. This is run by the Student Advice Centre – where students can access free independent advice on many issues including finance, housing, and academic issues

As well as eating healthily, you can help reduce your plastic waste too. Check out our 15 ways to use less plastic & save money.

*we got our prices from Tesco, whose prices are pretty average for a supermarket. You can hunt down the cheapest super-market but remember that there are small local options such as Grainger Market - where you can get meat, fruit and veg at a much cheaper price.

Check out what is going on:

Monday 3rd Feb – Free valentine kit/free rose from the Student Advice Centre – level 0 NUSU (Collect yours anytime from noon)

Pop in to the SAC to receive a free DIY valentine kit containing everything you need to create a beautiful card for a loved one or friend (there are even free roses whilst stocks last)!

Tuesday 4th Feb – Battle of the Baskets Taste-test Challenge

Luthers (11am – 3pm)

Find the SAC volunteers in Luther's bar to have a go at our taste testing game where you will be (figuratively) blindfolded to see if you can tell the difference between basic and branded foods.

Can you really taste the difference between branded and non-branded? Maybe after this game, you’ll realise that you can save your pennies at your next food shop. 

Wednesday 5th Feb – Guess the price of the Basket Challenge - Luthers (11am – 3pm)

Meet us in Luther's for your opportunity to win win win. We have our famous Basket Challenge for you to play. Just guess the price of our shopping baskets for your chance to win one of them!

We also have our wheel-spin game for your chance to answer questions, as well as learning helpful hints and tips. Not only that, but you would also be in with the chance of winning a shopping voucher or cinema ticket!
