During Elections 2019, 50p for every vote cast by a sports club or society member was put into a unique fund - the Vote 2019 Sports and Societies Fund. By the end of the Elections period there was a total of £720 available for sports teams and societies apply for, which would be split between the applicants. All applicants had to do was tell us how it would benefit their chosen activity and demonstrate good value for money.
We had over 30 applications for the funding, which then went to a panel. The panel, made up of a mix of Hull University Union students, presidents and staff, discussed all applications and judged them on good value for money and demonstrated impact for students, including details on what the funding would be spent on. The winners are:
Duke of Edinburgh
Women's Lacrosse Club
Congratulations to all the successful applicants and thanks for all the entries. If your team or society is still keen for more funding, visit our Fund Your Activity page here to see what you might be eligible for.
