COMPETITION! Free Freshers Giveaway!

SystemSystem Posts: 8,629 Staff Team
So as many of you might know the start of term is just around the corner, and for many that means Freshers Week! Surprisingly, Freshers isn't all about the alcohol, there are much more important things to consider, like all the freebies you can pick up over the week!

As part of the Community Strengtheners group (Jess has introduced us here) we're running a competition based around freebies.
Sound good? Keep reading if you wanna get involved!

So for those of you starting university in the next few weeks, all we want you to do is post a picture of all the free things you collect in your Freshers week.
And for those of you not heading to a Freshers fair, we want to see a picture of the best freebie you got recently.

We've got some great prizes to give away, such as... *drumroll*
This fantastic tablet

Everyone's favourite, Bananagrams!

    We got the Wetherspoons bags too! :p The dude was like, here take a few! Obviously, I don't drink, but still took a bag xD - Can't actually recall what was in the bag now, other than a few discounts! :o However, you have so many wristbands :o - Best thing about Freshers has to be the free stuff, and HIGHLIGHTERS :o

    Yes, I like proving my point, and I just have.



    Thank you for Third place, but I don't think I deserve it all! Meagain has a fab lot of prizes from the freshers fair, and so neatly organized to and has also given us a picture, and also got it in before the deadline!!!! :heart: Ooh, and can people still respond even though the competition is now finished? Are you going to pull more names out of a hat?
  • JamesJames Posts: 1,706 Community Manager
    Hey Whispers,

    You should add 'an impressive eye for detail' to your CV ;)
    Ultimately, this is all meant to be a bit of fun, and although the goalposts did change a little bit, the hat's decision is final. Of course, if anyone wants to swap prizes etc, then feel free :)
