Winter Wellness Expo

The Winter Wellness Expo is a free, all ages, non-alcoholic event for all UC students. It is brought to you by UCSA Help (Advocacy & Welfare) team, and will be held on Wednesday 26 July in the Undercroft, from 10am – 2pm.

There will be stalls offering free second-hand stuff (e.g., clothes, shoes, household items etc.), free brand new beanies, scarves and gloves (limited quantity), as well as free hot drinks and baking.  Other stalls include Tenancy Protection Association, Christchurch Budget Service and Community Energy Action’s curtain bank!

The NZ Police will be there to label phones, laptops etc. with UV markers, and give students tips on how to prevent burglaries. NZ Fire Service will also be there to give students information on fire safety.

Most importantly, there will be:

  • a sewing/mending station, and
  • a powerboard safety testing station.

So find those garments that need mending, retrieve any powerboards that have not been safety tested, pack your laptops/phones/gaming devices, and bring them all down to the Undercroft during Winter Wellness Expo.

Note: Please bring some bags to pack the goodies in.
