“That bit extra” promotes engaging projects that has included everything from plants to pants. The Students’ Union successfully bid for the NUS Student Eats to promote a College food growing society. The College entered environmental projects in the Lloyds MFL Challenge. Don’t Spend a Wedge involved students handing out free pots and seeds and Cash4Trash raised recycling awareness highlighting items to exchange for cash. Its Chelsea Fringe entry used recycled containers to display plants in a shopping trolley to challenge the ‘take away culture’ and show how to grow your own.
