Winners of the Loughborough Family Valentine’s Competition Announced

Last week we ran our #LboroFamily Valentine’s Competition, seeking engaging and exciting stories from our alumni on the theme of the Loughborough Family.

We received over 60 entries, and we have selected three lucky winners who will receive £50 worth of Cineworld and restaurant vouchers to enjoy their next date or mate night on us.

Alumna, Helen Handley, submitted an emotional story about how four fellow alumnae have supported her through her cancer diagnosis and treatment in recent months. The alumnae have been friends since their University days, when they lived together in the year of 1999-2000.

Two winning wedding stories were also submitted for the competition. Harry Hogarth shared his story of marrying Becky in August 2017, where around 50 alumni were present. They were married at St. Peter’s Church in Loughborough. As part of their entry, Harry shared a heart-warming video of their special day.

A Loughborough-themed wedding story also wins a prize. Chantal and Robert Hulme married in July 2015 having met one another at Loughborough in 2010. Their wedding featured tables named after places in Loughborough that are special to them. There were 28 alumni at their wedding, including the best man and bridesmaids. The couple have since had two daughters.

Congratulations to all of our Valentine’s Competition winners, and thank you to everyone who entered their stories.
