    Are we allowed to ask for free items on here?

    I am after some resources to use in school and have tried freecycle but no luck, as I'm self funded with no budget and a student I havent got cash to burn.

    I would pay postage costs but not sure if I'd be breaking rules to ask here.

    Please note this is an enquirey in miscellaneous so I cannot be punished for asking.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Curvy, Don't know what you need or how soon but do the items need to be second hand or new?
    If newish then try writing to your local firms on a charitable basis, a lot of corporates and retailers have a yen to see their names on local papers for having donated something to help the community or school.

    Can't see a problem - I'd be happy to help if I have anything you need.

    someone was asking for a free sky viewing card earlier so dont think it should be a problem. Wot sort of items u after?

    Im sure if you say what type of stuff your after. People on here will be more than happy to help!

    Oh ok, I didn't know if I was breaking any rules, do I need to post in misc?

    Basically I'm a student teaching in Nottingham in final year so really want to push to make this final placement a good one. (apart from currently being stuck at home with Pharingitis!) I have chosen fairgrounds as a stimulus for topic work in all subjects and as the children are between 5 and 7 am seeking anything fairground related to have in the classroom- toys/books/posters/costumes/music etc etc.

    I dont get any funding for the placement, nor do we get paid for the 7 weeks full work we do (also its impossible to hold down another job alongside with the hours and planning we do) so am low on funding.

    I wondered if anyone had anything even slightly related whether they could spare it to me?
