Lauran Hunter, a second year Psychology undergraduate student, has been presented with the Frank May Cup after being named the ‘Volunteer of the Year’.

Judy Bullimore of the MS Society said: “Lauran is a shining example of how perseverance, passion and ultimate dedication can make an enormous impact on the local and wider community. For several years, the MS Society branch in Leicester has been keen to reach people currently not engaged with their services.

“Since Lauran has been volunteering, she has injected a new perspective and energy by setting up a formal committee. This is very rare across the 300 branches part of the MS Society, which symbolises Lauran’s determination to go above and beyond her duties as a volunteer to ensure the future success of the branch.

“This is a remarkable achievement for a second year undergraduate in such a short space of time, which can be an inspiration for many other students.”

Lauren has also been busy with other volunteering activities including Good Deed Day.

Dr Frank May, a great benefactor of the University, donated the Frank May Cup a few years ago, an engraved replica of which is awarded to the Volunteer of the Year.
