Sheffield University Snowboard Club
• Applied to the Alumni Foundation in November 2013
• Awarded £715
Sheffield University Snowboard Club (SUSC) is a competitive and social sports club offering snowboarding, wakeboarding, surfing and longboarding sessions.
The club was in need of new equipment and also assistance with covering the costs of competition fees.
The committee awarded the club a grant of £715. The grant from the Alumni Foundation was used to purchase a brand new club snowboard and a wakeboard, which will allow more members to compete without needing their own equipment. The rest of the grant was used to cover the cost of competition fees.
The new snowboard has been used in many competitions in England, Scotland and France, and the club has done exceptionally well in all competitions attended in 2014.
