Volunteer Awards 2012

Edge Hill University’s Students’ Union celebrated its first ever Volunteer Awards on Monday! It was a fantastic time for me as it was the day my dissertation was due in so it was lovely to relax in the evening!

The ceremony took place Hale Hall and recognised the achievements of over 100 student volunteers, and the work they have done over the past year to improve relations between students and the local community. I was up for an award for being a student representative for Criminology> I was thrilled to win a certificate recognising my contribution to the university, which was an honour.  

Edge Hill University Students Union Volunteer Awards

I received great news this week 🙂

I was recently nominated as a student rep by the Criminology department to receive an award for hard work and dedication. Yesterday I found out I have now been short listed to the final ten students in the running to receive the ‘Student Representative of the Year Award’ I am extremely excited. The award ceremony is on the 23rd of April 2012 which coincidentally the due date for my dissertation, so it will be a nice celebration to spend the evening at the awards. I will be receiving a certificate for being a student rep but to win the award would be an amazing achievement so I am really looking forward to it and I know I will be very nervous on the night. Will let you know how it goes 🙂

Wish me luck 🙂
