We are so proud to see the resilience and dedication that all our Societies have maintained throughout the many challenges that you have all faced this year.
From the multiple lockdowns, little to no use of on campus facilities and being unable to lead normal social activities, to say it has been tough is an understatement. We recognise that this year has been far from normality and that the restrictions have caused a significant limitations for all societies.
Following on from this, I'm very pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees have approved our proposal to refund all paid Societies membership fees. Your society will keep the membership funds to support activity in the coming year, whilst the SU absorbs the cost of refunding memberships. We feel that this is the most direct action we can take to give you the credit you deserve and also to support society activity going forward.
Please note - We will be processing the refunds on Thursday 8th April and it may take up to 7 working days for the money to enter your bank accounts. In the case that your registered bank details have expired, we will contact you directly in order to arrange your refund.
We are so excited for the next academic year, when things are beginning to look a lot brighter with the hope of all restrictions being lifted. We encourage you to continue supporting each other throughout the Society elections period and we strongly hope we will be able to work with some of you again in the next academic year. I would like to thank you all for your continued dedication throughout these difficult times.
