As previously reported by The Linc, the society was told that it must find a Treasurer and reach ten paid members by November 1, in order to keep running.

The club raised concerns about its future, when it had only six paid members and was without a Treasurer and Social Secretary.

But, the Vice President of the Animation Society, Maria Pullen, has told The Linc that they now have 12 paid members, and that the society ‘have learned a lot from the experience’.

“On behalf of the Society, I would like to thank everyone who shared, supported and signed up to use. It’s thanks to you guys that our society can continue to exist.

“This experience has taught me that if you’re struggling, just tell people or else they can’t help. If we kept this to ourselves, we would have lost our society for sure,” she said.

The Students’ Union has confirmed that the society has the 12 members that they need, and a candidate has been nominated for Treasurer.

SU Vice President for Activities, Luke Exton, said that the members must be sure to vote in the by-elections to ensure the society is saved.

“I’m really pleased to hear that Animation has received the minimum amount of members,” he said.

The society still needs to vote for their Treasurer, to ensure that the society can continue to run.

Voting is open on the Lincoln SU website from tomorrow, and will close next Monday.
