National Society Awards
We are incredibly proud of our two societies that are nominated for National Society Awards - Women for Women International Society for Best Fundraising/Campaigning Society and AstroSoc for Best Academic Society. Over 800 societies across the UK applied to be nominated and it is fantastic to see that some of our societies have made the shortlist! From everyone at the Students' Association - well done and good luck!
Women for Women International Society
The St Andrews Women for Women International Society raises money for post-conflict survivors of war in countries including Kosovo, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Thank you to everyone who has supported our events over the course of the academic year, enabling us to sponsor women whose lives have been torn apart by war. The proceeds from our most recent event, Women in the Arts, has enabled us to sponsor another woman living in a post-conflict area for a year. A big thank you to our friends from Capture Collective for helping us to be so successful! We are delighted to have been nominated for the National Societies Award for Best Campaigning/ Fundraising Society 2019 - we have our AGM on Monday and are excited to see what the new committee will get up to next.
