Vice President Emma Bonner says that the idea behind it is to offer someone a smile and hope that they take it away with them. She said they have organised the event because “Christmas can be a very lonely and sad time for people” and that “a smile goes a long way”.

President Colum Mackey said that there are always student officers available for a chat, as well as help available on the UUSU website. He said: “We are running a campaign online at the moment which gives people a few tips about exam stress and what they can do to combat it”.

If you are cramming in the library today, pop over to the ‘Cheer’ stall and go away with a smile or at the least a festive treat.
