It seems almost implausible that CIYK v CIYS was held less than 24 hours before, with the SU Main Hall looking glamorous decked out in drapes, pom poms and fancy fish bowls!
With 73 nominees across six categories, and over 100 people in attendance, it truly was a special night as we celebrated some of your amazing success stories from 2018/19.
Our Sabbatical Officers, led by President Clem Jones, did a fantastic job of presenting the awards, and we were also treated to two incredible society performances. First, Dance Society had us all tapping our feet away to a flawless routine of 'Tap Your Troubles Away', before Absolute Harmony gave us a beautiful rendition of 'Steady' by The Staves.
We were also delighted to be joined once again by Carol and Evan Grant, parents of former Royal Holloway student Cameron Grant who took his own life in 2014. Evan was pleased to present the winner of our Cameron Grant Memorial Shield - an award given to a student who has overcome adversity, successfully managed mental health issues, or helped another student with either of the above.
Thank you to everyone who made tonight possible and congratulations to all of our nominees and winners.
Look out for the photos on the main SU Facebook page!
