Sports... Societies... Volunteering... Freebies... and so much more!

Our Fayres are big and not to be missed events in the Welcome Week calendar... so big that we have to run it over three days! It is the best opportunity to discover what's on offer at the University and locally. RUSU sports clubs and societiesmedia and volunteer groups will all be there as well as a whole host of commercial companies and charities. Come to the Fayres and chat to the students that run the RUSU's sports clubs and societies, find out what they're about and ask any questions.

Really keen? Can’t wait? You can even join sports clubs and societies online in advance. You will need to register on the RUSU website and have a student number to be applicable to get a student membership.

Volunteering Fayre

11.00am - 3.00pm on Tuesday 23rd September

To kick start Welcome Week why not come along to our Volunteer Fayre. All RUSU’s own student led volunteer projects will be attending as well as a host of local and national organisations all looking to sign more volunteers up for the new academic year. A wide range of voluntary opportunities will be on offer from wildlife and conservation projects to local charities looking after children and the elderly. Whether you can spare just a few hours here and there or are looking to really get stuck in, there will be something for everyone.

'Like' RUSU Volunteering Facebook page for an insight into all the volunteering opportunities available throughout the year.

We are always looking to expand our volunteering portfolio so if you have an idea about starting a project why not come along and chat to our Volunteer & Social Enterprise Coordinator.
