BUCS Awards Dinner 2017

To end the 2017 BUCS Conference, themed ‘achieving excellence in HE sport and physical activity’, nearly 500 BUCS member institution representatives gathered in the University of Hertfordshire’s Forum building for the 2017 BUCS Awards Dinner (#BUCSawards17).


Radio and television presenter and avid sports fan Colin Murray hosted the evening, as 12 awards – including two new awards – were presented. A raffle was held to break up the awards with prizes ranging from Adam Peaty’s ‘match worn’ signed swimming trunks to a Technogym Wellness Ball.  A total of £3023 was raised for The Perfect Day Foundation with Colin Murray topping it up to £5000.
