The Community Award

“The club or society has taken active steps to make a positive impact in the community. This can be through involvement with activities and events at the University, but they will also have made an impact on the wider community by engaging with activities, campaigns and events at a local, national or international level. They may have engaged with community groups and have helped to promote FXU students as valued members of the community. Outstanding contributions to charitable work and charity fundraising would be recognised within this award.”
