ZEST is a community enterprise in Sheffield looking for volunteers to help out at the Christmas Family Fun Day at their centre.

ZEST are looking for volunteers to help out with  face painting, adult craft, children’s craft, santa’s grotto, giving out mince pies and general seasonal cheer! There will also be music and a choir. For all our Give it a Go Volunteering no experience is required. You do not need to buy a ticket from the Box Office (as the activity is free), instead book your place in the Sheffield Volunteering Office in the Students Union. (Open Mon-Fri 10am-5pm). For all GIAG Volunteering Events you will be meeting a group of students and a volunteering ambassador at the SU. The Volunteering Ambassador will have all the travel information and will take you to the event and back to the SU when it finishes. All travel costs are covered and lunch is reimbursed for opportunities over 4 hours.


Give it a Go is an activities programme full of fabulous activities and sports for you to try. It gives you the chance to try new things, meet new people, learn new skills and visit different places. Look out for the booklets as it is bursting with fun and exciting things, all run at a beginner's level.

With the Give it a Go programme you can try canoeing, zumba, foreign languages and even board a coach for one of our day trips or weekends away! All the activities work on a pay as you go basis, so just buy a ticket in advance from the Students' Union Box Office and turn up. Simple!

Every year thousands of students take part in Give it a Go, and you should too! It's a fantastic way to have great experiences, makes new friends and discovers new hobbies. 

There are four main programmes throughout the year: Intro, Autumn, Spring and Summer so there is definitely something for everybody.

Give it a Go has teamed up with the Residences to offer those students with a Residence Life card £2 off every event above £2.50 in the entire Give it a Go programme and £5 off full-priced day-trip tickets. Just flash your card to the Box Office staff when buying a ticket. Look out for the Residence Life logo to find activities that are right on your doorstep!
