Celebrating our Societies’ amazing achievements in 2018

Last night we held our annual TUU Societies Council Awards which honour and give thanks to the incredible work that our TUU affiliated Societies do throughout the year. Picking the winners is never an easy task and the voting committee spend hours deliberating and discussing each result. A massive congratulations to those societies and individuals who picked up an award and commiserations to those who just missed out. You should all be very proud of what you’ve achieved this year and we can’t wait to see what amazing events and activities you put together next year.
