The University of Sheffield, School of Law team has emerged victorious in the Community Action category for their outstanding efforts in supporting charities and local residents. Through a series of events and sustainable initiatives, the team has significantly impacted the local community and environment. From fundraising for the Snowdrop Project, to supporting the S6 Foodbank and engaging in monthly litter picks, their dedication to fostering community relationships and addressing shared challenges is truly commendable.  

Judges were impressed by the team's sustained commitment and high achievements in Green Impact over the years, as well as their multifaceted approach, which not only raised funds for charitable causes but also contributed to reducing landfill waste and enhancing the local environment. Their inclusive and impactful initiatives have undoubtedly made a difference in the lives of community members, earning them well-deserved recognition.
