Katherine has said "This has been a really tough decision as I have loved working as President. I am delighted that I will still have the opportunity to be involved with Sports Clubs in my new role, and will continue to support students in my role at RGU SPORT. I want to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged me over the past few months. I have enjoyed every second of it. I wish the Union team and all of the clubs the best of luck in all their adventures and challenges over the year."
