Nominations for the John Honey award are now open.
The most prestigious award given out by the Students’ Association, the award – which was founded in 2002 – is designed to recognise the work of a student who has made an outstanding contribution to student welfare within the University.
Previous winners have included the director of nightline and a person who saved another’s life. The award is in memory of John Honey (1781-1813) who rescued five seamen from their wrecked ship during a storm in 1800. Each year, students commemorate his life with the torch lit procession on the pier known as the Gaudie.
Anyone can nominate a matriculated student.
