After being nominated for this prestigious award, never before won by a student-run charity organisation, Karnival were incredibly proud to accept their award on Thursday 24th May at a ceremony at the House of Lords in London.
Karnival were honoured with the Outstanding Contribution Award for raising tens of thousands of pounds for the Breast Cancer Campaign over the past few years, having raised money through their infamous RAG-raids and mega-raids and competing with other student RAGs to win the Best RAG Organisation Award for the past two years.
Karnival directors 2009-2012, David Rees, Sam O’Flaherty, Chris Bowman and Barney Cornick, accepted the award on behalf of Karnival and all its student fundraisers over the years. In an acceptance speech, current director Barney Cornick commented: “We would like to thank Breast Cancer Campaign so much for this award, and are so grateful for the recognition of all our hard work for such an incredible cause.”
