Annual Fund boosts student experience

Thirty-three projects which will enhance the University experience for students have received a boost thanks to Queen’s Annual Fund.

The Fund plays a pivotal part in the creation of unrestricted funds for projects and institutional priorities that can bring about an immediate impact to today’s students.

Those who make a contribution to the Queen’s Annual Fund are making an investment in the future of talented Queen’s students.

Natasha Sharma, Queen’s Annual Fund Manager, explains: “Through schemes such as the Queen’s Annual Fund we can make a tangible difference to the lives of students, enriching their experience of University life and helping them help others.”

This year’s projects were awarded funding ranging from £400 to £5,000. This included support for the Queen’s Mountaineering Club whose members will attempt to climb the Tien Shan Mountains (the Dzhirnagaktu Glacier of Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia). This is the first time that this has been attempted – so good luck to the team.

Keeping their feet firmly on the ground is the Queen’s Dance Society who has been given money to purchase a dance floor and costumes for the end of year dance showcase.

Queen's Accommodation and Hospitality have been given money to purchase 20 bicycles for the cycle rental scheme. Other recipients include the Queen’s Surf Club who will be cutting a dash on our beaches in their new kit.
