Parents can help out freshers with a surprise package, says Parcel2Go

Parcel2Go has called on parents to help their sons and daughters banish those post-freshers' week blues by getting creative in the parcel department.

At universities across the UK, new students have spent the last week (or fortnight in some cases!) partying hard and making new friends. It's all too easy for an anti-climax to set in once the DJ has left the stage and it's time to get stuck into some studying though. But the UK's largest online parcel delivery specialist is determined to make sure that doesn't happen, and has urged mums and dads of freshers to come to the rescue with a surprise package from home.

"Once the initial buzz of starting at university is over and the desk is suddenly struggling under the weight of 20 textbooks, it's easy to see why some new students might need a bit of a pick-me-up," said Richard Mercer, marketing manager at Parcel2Go. "And what better way to cheer them up than with a parcel of goodies from home. We're calling on all parents with sons and daughters who have just started their first year at university to take up the challenge."

A Parcel2Go parcel delivery could contain reminders of home, a new book, some precious item that got left behind in the move, or just a small present to let them know that everyone at home is thinking of them. Or for parents that really want to be practical, some course textbooks although an educational present is less likely to be effective in putting a smile on a student's face!

Mr Mercer added: "For many young people it will be the first time they've been away from home for an extended period, and once the hubbub of freshers' week has calmed down, the prospect can seem a little daunting. An unexpected package can go a long way to making everything seem much rosier."

Anyone with a son or daughter studying abroad can also join in thanks to Parcel2Go's international delivery services. The website's parcel tracking option also lets parents keep an eye on their consignment as it makes its way to its destination.
