Three student projects will benefit from more than £10,000 of funding from the University’s Friends’ Committee.
The Friends of the University of Liverpool Committee, which is a registered charity, brings together people who have a desire to support the University and is made up of University staff and students both past and present.
The main function of Friends is to allocate grants from the funds at its disposal, which are accumulated from subscriptions and requests.
In the latest round of grants the Liverpool Aerospace Society, the Liverpool University Boat Club and the Liverpool Karting Society were allocated funds following successful applications:
- The Liverpool Aerospace Society received £500 for the development of a drone as part of wider project to develop an air system capable of lifting and delivering humanitarian aid packages. The drone will also be used for schools engagement and on University Open Days and Discovery Days
- The Liverpool University Boat Club received £10,000 to purchase a new rowing boat
- The Liverpool Karting Society received £160 to purchase new equipment including team overalls and wetsuits
