The T S Shipman prizes were presented by the University's Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Roberts at a ceremony held at the town's John Storer House. Also present was the Mayor Councillor Debbie Green.

Alex was awarded the prize in recognition of his work with the mentoring project at King Edward VII Community College in Coalville during the last three years.  this is aimed at breaking down barriers between teenagers who are underachieving academically and perceive university as something out of their reach.

Sophie was presented with the award following her work with local autistic children.  She has combined her work interest in psychology with work in the community by taking part in specialist training on the skills of befriending children with autism.  Since completing the training she has provided help and respite to the parents of an autistic child in the local area.
