The Volunteering Services Unit (VSU) held its 2011 Volunteering Awards Ceremony on the evening of the 26 May in the Roberts Foyer, UCL Engineering Building. Now in its ninth year, this event boasted three special group awards, various speakers, as well as the highly deserved recognition of individual UCL volunteers.
As John Braime, Volunteering Manager started by saying, the awards are one of their ways of saying thank you to volunteers for all their work done in the community. Professor David Price, UCL Vice-Provost (Research), identified student volunteering as being one of the high points in activities taking place at UCL.
The VSU started in 2002 with 200 volunteers and by the end of this academic year numbers will have grown to 1,350 – a 12% increase on last year.
