Royal Holloway students have been doing their part for the community by volunteering in Egham, Englefield Green and other nearby villages as part of the Big Spring Clean campaign, in conjunction with the 10th annual national Student Volunteering Week.
Over 120 students participated in the week-long event. First-year student Indré Lampsatis said, ‘I would definitely recommend other people to do it…it was great doing something for the community. I’ve done volunteering in the past. It’s very rewarding.’
On campus, the university also held a Mosaic workshop with the local Community Network, and a Community Network Partners’ Lunch at the Founder’s Picture Gallery after last year’s resounding success. Guests included the Mayor of Runnymede Cllr Margaret Roberts and Deputy Principal Professor Rob Kemp.
The Volunteering England Gold Award was presented to students Sarah Bartlett, Jerome Lock-Wah-Hoon, Domagoj Fizulic and Richard Selwyn for their outstanding contribution to community volunteering.
