UniHaller Andy Lau is the man behind the End of Semester Bazaar Sale which took place at University Hall on Wednesday 3rd June.
As a participant of the University Hall Leadership Program he was assigned with the task of developing a project which will improve particular aspects of the Hall. Excited by this challenge, Andy came up with the idea of selling unwanted items lingering in student’s rooms. He says he always found it hard to sell any of his own unwanted things, especially towards the end of semester.
With this idea in mind he sent out a survey to UniHall residents to determine who felt the same and would be interested in participating in a sale type of event.
“The response was overwhelming and positive with many students loving the idea of setting up a Bazaar Sale day,” says Andy.
To bring this idea to life he also met with his mentor Emily Goh who gave him a few handy tips in event organising.
The slightly overcast day didn’t stop anyone from heading to the Upper Quad to check out over seven stalls of preloved treasures for sale. One UniHaller even volunteered to put together a baking stall where she made cupcakes and muffins for gold coin donations for the Cancer Council.
“I feel the event was pretty successful as the turnout was great and all the students selling things managed to clear most of their tables,” says Andy.
Andy thoroughly enjoyed organising this event for the community and hopes it will be an ongoing activity for UniHallers and UWA students to get involved in for the future!
