AN academic society raised over £400 in textbook sales to undergraduates in a one-off event.
Hosted in Divas, the Psychology Society offered students the chance to sell their unwanted textbooks.
Joshua Hale, vice-president of the society, said: “One student bought the recommended book bundle for £70 under retail price and another student bought three books for the price of one text book.
“We raised £426.50 on behalf of students. £150 for Discovery and about £50 for the society. We had a very generous donation of 17 brand new textbooks from Rodger Wood and the psychology department was very supportive of the whole event.
“We hope to hold another one in the New Year due to the success of this one.”
