On Friday 20th August 2021 we hosted the first joint Sports and Society Awards where we celebrated their achievements and successes over the past 12 months. 

The evening was held at Villiers Hotel in Buckingham where all attendees were greeted on arrival with a red carpet and prosecco reception before heading through for the award ceremony and 3 course dinner. 

Our Membership Services Manager, Brook Jones, and Students’ Union President, Kris Sheard, welcomed everyone to the event before handing over to our hosts of the evening Henry Hunt, Vice President of the Students’ Union, and Sarah Ruff, Sports Coordinator.
