This year’s vOscars will be held on 2nd May and will be even bigger and better than last year. More details will follow throughout the year, so keep your ears and eyes open!
At the end of the year, we issue an Awards Certificate (depending on the number of hours of volunteering that you have completed), which recognises your voluntarty achievements - 10-49 hours Achievement in Volunteering
- 50-99 hours Excellence in Volunteering
- 100+ hours Outstanding Contribution to Volunteering
How to record your hours?
This year you will need to fill out your passport each time you volunteer, you will also need to get the project leader/ supervisor to sign it off.
At the end of your volunteering you hand the passport back to us, we will then check that it is valid and add up your hour
Once we have totalled your hours we will prepare a certificate for you which will be held at the SU Reception for the summer and the first month of the Term 1.
If you are in your final year, please provide us with an address to post your certificate to you once it is ready. Unclaimed certificates will be shredded after 1 year, and cannot be reclaimed.
