CICCU to open Van of Afterlife in Market Square

Will Tilbrook 1 April 2017

Cambridge Inter-Collegiate Christian Union (CICCU) are making plans to compete with the existing fast food stalwarts in Market Square by opening an alternative wheeled operation early next year.

The new business venture, the Van of Afterlife, will offer jam sandwiches and water bottles as a free alternative to the quesadillas and cheesy chips currently on offer from the two resident food providers.

An application to Cambridge City Council to hold a pitch from late January to early March 2018 was accepted last week, on the provision that CICCU demonstrates that their van will be distinctly different to its competitors.

A representative of CICCU, Tom Linnie, told The Cambridge Student: "students are told from Freshers' Week to avoid ‘the van of death’, and CICCU wants to provide an alternative for those looking for late-night salvation.

"The VoL might be able to get you your fix of greasy goods, but can it offer eternal life?"
