University Awards for Outstanding Alumni

10 July 2018

Two notable Nottingham Trent University alumni are among the figures to be presented with special awards during NTU’s forthcoming graduation ceremonies.

Awards for Outstanding Alumni will be presented to Beth Chilton, in recognition of her success in the fashion business, and to Lizzie Carr, in recognition of working to rid the UK’s waterways of plastic pollution.

Beth Chilton (BA Hons Fashion and Textile Management 2008) owns two fashion brands with her business partner. Within the first 12 months of launching they turned over £1m and in 2016 they convinced Dragons’ DenPeter Jones and Deborah Meaden to invest in their e-commerce site.

Lizzie Carr (BA Hons English 2007) became the first female in history to paddle board solo across the English Channel, while collecting water samples for micro plastic analysis as part of her #PlasticPatrol campaign.
