About Me

Hi guys! I’m Lucy and I’m taking on the new role VP Societies & Sport for 2020/21!

I am so excited to work with our student groups over the following year, supporting them as they develop and shape the lives of students.

Given current virtual and social distancing restrictions, I know student groups are going to be vital in helping people stay connected and I cannot wait to see the innovation our student groups show to support our community going forward.

Whilst this may seem daunting, I am ready to support groups 100% to do this and am enthusiastic we will see some incredible action being taken.

Additionally, it will be great to see how this new role shapes itself throughout the year and if you have any suggestions/comments on how you think this looks, please do get in touch!

One of my main aims for this year will be developing the support available to student group committees to ensure they can carry out their roles as effectively as possible and, in turn, provide their members with high quality activity. Additionally, I want to work on student group funding and make it more self-sustaining.

I cannot encourage you to get involved in student groups enough; they are a space where you will meet some amazing people and also be provided with some great opportunities!

Feel free to pop me over an email or message if you ever have a question, and please do say hi if you see me around campus!

The Role
