Queen's Annual Fund - Projects Funded
We have a duty to our students and our graduates to ensure that Queen’s is the best University it can be. Flexible funds allow the University to prioritise and to support new areas to ensure that future generations benefit from the Queen’s experience. Over £2.2m has been pledged from over 5,000 graduates and friends.
Queen's Annual Fund provided funds to purchase equipment to enable the archery club to compete in an intervarsity competition.
Meccano Bridge Build
A footbridge made from Meccano spanned 100ft across Belfast’s Clarendon Dock, earning Queen’s a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest ever Meccano construction. The year-long project run by the School of Planning, Architecture and Civil Engineering, and supported by Queen’s Annual Fund, encouraged more children to think about careers in STEM subjects and helped develop the skills of current students.
South Asian Student Society
Funding was provided to the South Asian Student Society to educate Queen’s students and the local community on the culture, customs and traditions from across the regions in the form of exhibition, drama, food, dance and music.
Underwater Hockey Club
This is a new club within the University and they required funding to travel to and compete in the Student National Competition in Warwick. As the least experienced team at the competition Queen’s final place of 11th out of 20 was a fantastic achievement.
