Welcome to our Fair!

We know that there's a wealth of talent within the HW community, and many students set up side-hustles over the last 18 months, selling the art and craft-pieces they were making.

Christmas is hard enough, and we know some people might be struggling financially. That's why we've looked for ways we could help by supporting student-run businesses in time for Christmas!

This is the second year we have opened our online Christmas Fair and we're super excited! Over the nine days of the fair, we'll showcase student talent from across Heriot-Watt and promote unique items they have available for sale.

We really hope you’ll enjoy browsing through our virtual “stalls” and get some inspiration for gifts for your friends and family. Each stall has its own online shop where you can purchase their products, so you can rest assured that they are handled safely.

See a stall you REALLY like? Give them a follow and tag them in posts with what you've bought using their @ and #WattmasFair

Merry Christmas everyone!

Can you give a little?

We, like many charities, are feeling the pinch of COVID-19. Due to current restrictions in place across the country, our trading activities are seeing a down-turn compared to normal. With fewer students on campus, and ever-changing restrictions placed upon trading (in particular within the hospitality sector) we aren't seeing the financial income we normally would. This has a direct impact on the types and amount of support we can offer our students - at a time when students need us the most.

If you feel able to donate something to us, you will be helping us to continue providing the help, support and social connections that students need during these difficult times
