Volunteering, Clubs and Societies Awards 2019

The SRC’s annual Volunteering, Clubs & Societies Awards celebrate the various achievements and success stories of our students.

The SRC’s annual award show for recognising volunteers, clubs and societies on campus is back!

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the VCS awards, and the ceremony will be held in the beautiful Kelvin Gallery on the 1st March 2019.

The VCS Awards exist to showcase the World Changers within the university and highlight the excellent activities that have ran throughout the past academic year. We want to celebrate the dedication and fantastic achievements that our clubs and societies have worked so hard towards throughout the year, the fantastic journalism and activities our media organisations have put on, and to allow our volunteers an opportunity to showcase themselves.

This year we are also awarding service to community through the ‘World Changers Community Award’, commending students on their involvement with the local community through volunteering or club & society initiatives.
