Management Sciences student wins multiple awards for social action project Jake Brown, a Management Sciences student, has been awarded Entrepreneurial Undergraduate of the Year and the TS Shipman Prize for his social action project, Utilise. The Utilise project, which has been run in Loughborough Town for the past year, works in partnership with local supermarkets to help reduce food waste. By redirecting usable food that would otherwise be thrown away, Utilise turns that food into the nutritious meals that are served at a cafe each Saturday in Loughborough on a ‘pay-as-you-feel’ basis. Jake received the TS Shipman prize at the latest Loughborough University annual community prize awards which honours outstanding student volunteers and community groups. Jake has also received an individual recognition in the Enactus regional competition this year. Next year, Jake is embarking on an industrial placement year and will be handing over the Utilise project to a new committee. Congratulations, Jake!
