Shona was nominated for her work as Academic Affairs and Access Officer for Keble and as President of the Oxford First-Gen Society, which connects and supports University of Oxford students who are among the first generation in their family to go to university.

The Oxford University Student Charity awards were organised by Oxford Raise and Give (RAG), the University’s student led fundraising group, and Oxford SU. The awards recognised the efforts of students in a range of areas including fundraising, campaigning and volunteering.

Ben Farmer, President of Oxford RAG said, ‘It was great to recognise Shona Galt’s hard work in access and outreach at the University with the award. She had a number of glowing nominations and is a very worthy recipient.’
