Congratulations to our Catering team who recently won two awards at The University Caterers’ Organisation (TUCO) Awards in the Rising Star and TUCO Member of the Year categories.

The TUCO Member of the Year Award recognises a member institution that has made a significant contribution to the work of TUCO, including attending events, training courses and study tours, participating in tender working parties and competitions and submitting articles for the TUCO magazine. Royal Holloway fought off strong competition from the Universities of Huddersfield and Wolverhampton to be crowned winners.

Helen Earwaker Rising StarMany congratulations also go to Helen Earwaker, New Business Executive in the Conference Office who succeeded against individuals from the Universities of Huddersfield and St Andrews to win the Rising Star Award. This award goes to an individual who is seen as an emerging talent with future potential within the industry. It recognises someone who strives to achieve success and results, inspires others or is recognised by others as having the potential to become a future leader in their industry.  Nominees also need to demonstrate that they have put one or more of the TUCO values into practice to make a significant difference at their workplace: transparency, integrity, equality, teamwork, commitment and wellbeing. The same award was won by Internal Hospitality and Events Coordinator, Terri Sadler in 2017.
