A local Charitable Foundation has received a donation of £500 from the Charity Fund of the last Mayor of Crewe and Nantwich.
On Thursday 13th May 2010, Councillor Brian Silvester and Sheila Davies, Mayor and Mayoress of Crewe and Nantwich during 2008/2009, presented to Bill Consterdine, Chairman of the Audlem Education Foundation, a cheque for £500. The presentation is the latest in a series of donations made to local education establishments such as Manchester Metropolitan University, South Cheshire College, Reaseheath College and Nantwich and Acton Grammar School Foundation from the Lifelong Learning Fund which has raised over £40,000 for good causes.
Councillor Silvester said “The aim of the Lifelong Learning Fund was to enable individuals from within the Crewe and Nantwich area to further their education. I am delighted that, by making this donation, we are able to support the work of the Foundation which continues to help local young people achieve their ambitions. Lifelong learning can change lives for the better and I am very pleased that the Mayoral Fund has been able to help so many local people.”
Mr Consterdine expressed his pleasure at receiving the donation “We greatly appreciate this kind gesture as it will help us in our continued efforts to support village young people in their educational endeavours“.
The Foundation provides financial support to help school children, students and other young people under the age of 25 living within the Ancient Parish of Audlem, including Buerton and Hankelow and part of Dodcott-cum-Wilkesley and Newhall to undergo training. Awards may be given for educational visits and field courses, foreign exchanges, equipment for people in vocational training and to assist students in higher education.
