Randox partners with Liverpool Guild of Students for their annual awards ceremony
Randox were proud to sponsor four awards at the Liverpool Guild of Students Awards 2018 which took place on Friday 27th April in the city’s Mountford Hall. Now in its tenth year, the prestigious occasion recognises individuals or groups who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help fellow students and the wider community while improving student experience at the University of Liverpool.
The ceremony was attended by 300 students nominated from Liverpool Guild of Student’s 22,000 student member body, along with key university staff members. Liverpool University is privileged to enjoy such a vibrant and active student culture in the city which made for tough competition in each of the awards categories.
The categories sponsored by Randox were in the Development category block;
Campaign of the Year – the Liverpool University Marine Biology Oceanography and Ecology Society won this award after they developed a campaign to reduce plastic impact on-campus as well as helping the general public to become more knowledgeable on the issue.
The Development Award – Congratulations to the Liverpool Paediatric Society who received this award. The society has fully committed to providing high quality academic, skills based sessions for their members. As well as fundraising for nominated charities throughout the year, they also provide excellent opportunities for members to learn new skills to help them both in their studies and future careers.
The Innovation Award – the National Hindu Students’ Forum Liverpool won the award for innovation after they built on the success of their previous committee members and raised over £400 for MIND by transforming a once small-scale event, Asha, into a large-scale event with stalls, raffles, performances and a three course meal.
The Challenge Award – the Feminist Society at the University of Liverpool has promoted inclusivity and broadened the reach of the Guild outside of the university campus. They have hosted a wide variety of fundraisers and club nights not only to raise funds for charities but also to educate attendees on sexual violence.
Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director of Randox, commented on the sponsorship;
“Through our own world-leading research and development in the field of health diagnostics, we are making a difference both locally and worldwide to improve health and extend lives. Development is one of the most fundamental areas in the modern era as we move forward, break boundaries and expand in to new territories and technologies in health research and diagnostics.
“Our sponsorship of the Development category at the Liverpool Guild of Students Awards – the Campaign of the Year, Innovation, Challenge and Development awards – signals our commitment to the future of research and the importance of both new ideas and talent for the future of science and beyond.”
Glen Whitcroft, Media Sales Manager at the Liverpool Guild of Students, said;
“We were incredibly proud of the achievements of our students. The positive difference they have made to their campus and communities is immeasurable and having a world-leading company such as Randox recognising their hard work by sponsoring four of our awards at the Liverpool Student Guild last week was a privilege. Randox is a company well-known for its encouragement of young talent through its second-to-none placement and graduate opportunities in a variety of disciplines from science and technology to engineering, marketing and even graphic design. We’re delighted to partner with a company who places such value on the importance of student and graduate positions.”
