We are delighted to support the “Play it forward” Bursary fund at Durham University. Each year we pledge £1000 to help students that may face financial hardship.

All recipients must do just one thing which in keeping with the values of the initiative. At some point in their life, they are to help someone else with no personal gain to themselves. It is through these small acts of kindness that we can make a difference in the world.

Here is a little note from the Principal of Van Mildert College, Durham University:

“I would like to add my sincere thanks for such a timely and generous donation. On behalf of College, I am hugely grateful for this thoughtful and appropriate gift. Sic vos non vobis.”
