The University of St Andrews Atheist Society wins BHA’s Humanist Activity Award

In March 2013, at the national convention of the National Federation of Atheist Humanist and Secular Student Societies, the University of St Andrews Atheist Society won the Humanist Activity Award for a talk entitled “Good without God” by HSS Communications Officer Tim Maguire.

The award was presented by Andrew Copson of the British Humanist Association to Ruth Haydock, Publicity Officer of the University of St Andrews Atheist Society.

Ruth Haydock said, “The University of St Andrews Atheist Society is delighted to
receive this prestigious award from the BHA.

The prize money of £350 will be used to
re-brand the society as ‘STASH’ (St Andrews Atheist,
Secularist and Humanist Society), increase publicity, and create more exciting events to promote Atheism,
Humanism and Secularism in St Andrews.

The
award-winning event was a talk given by HSS
Communications Officer Tim Maguire. Entitled “Good without God” he talked through the principles of
Humanism and explained how to live a good life without the need to believe in a
higher power. The event was very successful and is still the society’s
best attended talk to date.

The University of St
Andrews Atheist Society would like to take this opportunity to thank Tim
Maguire for taking the time to speak at one of their events and
enabling them to win this award.
