Over the last year, Lincoln SU's Activities Department have worked tirelessly to ensure that all sports and society members are at the heart of the We Are Lincoln community and can get involved in as many opportunities as possible.
This year, your VP Activities, Luke Exton, attended the Lincolnshire Sports Awards with James Brookes (Chief Executive), Hannah Coleman (Deputy CEO) and our Activities Department, including Lorna Cruickshank (Activities Manager), Emily Baldwin (Activities Co-ordinator) and Casey Blagg (BUCS Sports Assistant).
The team were up against Carre's Grammar School and Bishop Grosseteste University for the award of Sports Department of the Year (Secondary, HE/FE), sponsored by Lincoln City Football Club, celebrating a department within a secondary school, college or university who has inspired or led change in PE, school sport or the delivery of sport and physical activity.
In their nomination, the department outlined a variety of wins over the last year that have contributed to their overall success in getting students active, including:
Luke Exton, Vice President Activities, said:
"I'm absolutely overwhelmed that the Activities Department has won this award. It serves as great recognition for all the hard work and seemingly endless hours we all put in to make our students' experience the best it can possibly be. We've had massive wins throughout this last year, and none of it would have been possible without the support of our sports and societies and our partnership with the University of Lincoln, the School of Sport and Exercise Science and the Sports Centre. Here's to the rest of the year!"
