WIN a month’s supply of noodles!

Let’s face it, student life can be tough. Your assignments are all due at once, your flatmates leave passive aggressive notes about the dishes and your weekly food budget often consists of the spare change you find under the couch.

While the good folks at Countdown can’t solve your workload or flatmate problems, they have your cheap eats sorted.

Homebrand Noodles will be on Lockdown  at just $1.80 for a five pack, or two five packs for $3, in chicken and beef flavours. And this price is here to stay!

That means you could buy 117 five packs of Homebrand Noodles with your weekly $176.86 living costs payment. That’s 589 individual packs of noodles.

Prepare to get lucky and experience  a random and generous act any time through the next week, it can happen to anybody, anywhere and at any time and it could very well be you!

The Student Volunteer Army (SVA)  is holding their  annual Random Act of Kindness Week next week from the 20-24 July. With different gestures everyday through the five days ranging from anything to anything ( did you really think I was going to give it away?! ) the SVA bring some joy around campus in an attempt to remind everyone that being kind and giving back is a great way of life and can be extremely fun.

So make sure to be on the lookout throughout the week and who knows, it could be you! Like our  face book page to get to know what’s happening each day of the week with it’s location and time, on the day itself.  Take pictures and send them to the face book page and use the hash tag #RAK with it.

So get ready and be alert, the SVA is going to be around randomly being nice to people and it could just be you!
