Students’ Successful “Shift Your Stuff” Campaign

OARA was pleased to support and join in with SUSU’s (Southampton University Students’ Union) campaign to ensure that house clear out time at the end of the year was a less stressful time for students and residents alike. Large red plastic bags were distributed to student households, collected on designated days by Jason Evans and his SCC team, and sorted by a team of student and local volunteers, including some of the OARA Committee. Hundreds of bags were collected and the sorted contents redistributed to local charities, though not before some of the sorters ended up in an array of fancy dress! Full marks to SUSU who organised this brilliantly , had fun in the process and definitely ensured there was a lot less rubbish out on the streets.
