December VOTM - Sofia Rajkumarsingh, Kent RaG Events Officer

In December, Sofia was involved in planning two events: the Vensday Christmas Special, which raised over £900 for Children's Trust and Santa's Grotto as a part of the Kent Union Christmas Market. She is also involved with small volunteering activities outside of RaG, like making Christmas boxes with the Homeless Outreach society and providing support to many other societies. Her hard work with events makes RaG a lovely society to be a part of and I think she deserves this award for December.


January VOTM - Miguel Santos, KSCV Champion and Community Volunteer

Miguel is continually hard working and has been from the word go! You will always see Miguel going the extra mile and staying longer than anyone when doing his volunteering. He has a constant smile on his face and really makes people feel appreciated. Miguel deserves this recognition for all the energy, passion and love which he puts into Kent Union. Thank you Miguel!


February VOTM – Josie Horton, Women’s Officer

Josie has gone above and beyond with her organisation of Kent's International Women's Week and her organisation of the ongoing Women's Campaign. She has gone the extra mile at every turn, and taken immense amounts of responsibility onto her shoulders. She really is an exceptional person who adds as much value and good to a project as she can.
