Although we were initially sponsored mainly by corporate sponsorship there were undoubtedly some individual gifts within the initial “one thousand one hundred and thirty six pounds eighteen shillings and ten pence” with which the scholarship was started.
Past scholars have also donated over the years, many by standing order. The ability of scholars to donate varies as to their career path and personal situation. Wherever possible we look to maximise the impact of the gift by seeking Gift Aid which can be particularly beneficial if the donor is in the higher tax brackets. Indeed this is the most effective time for donations to be made.
If you want to discuss making a donation please contact Russ Blenkinsop (Treasurer)

Not all sponsors want to be named and so many of the donations are anonymous. However we would like to recognise certain individual sponsors below:
