It has been quite a year for Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds – and now they are in the running for a top university award.
The club were short-listed for our Off-Track Club of the Year in the 4J Studios Annual Awards and Gregor Malcolm was named as our Volunteer of the Year.
Now both the club and Gregor himself have been short-listed in the BUCS Awards (British Unis and Colleges).
Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds are in the hunt for the Club of the Year accolade with rivals from Glasgow and from Nottingham.
The award ‘celebrates a club that has demonstrated a commitment to club development that has results in improving the university sport experience’.
And Gregor is one of three contenders for the Student Volunteer of the Year title with rivals from Nottingham and East Anglia.
The award ‘celebrates a student volunteer who has contributed to university and/or community work’.
Well done to all at Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds and best wishes for the BUCS Awards.
