Bursary award for youth leader

21 Jul 2011 - 11:08 by michelle.foster

Charities in Greater Manchester are being invited to apply to the Peter Kershaw Memorial Bursary for a bursary to fund the costs of a youth leader.

The bursary will be awarded on the basis of up to £25,000 for year one, £15,000 for year two and £10,000 for year three.

Priority will be given to organisations that can show a firm shared element of funding beyond year one and where the appointment creates new opportunities.

The Trust was set up by Peter Kershaw, the ex-chairman of the Joseph Holt Brewery, partly to benefit disadvantaged young people.
