Another student success story

We also received this letter from Garry Halsey

Dear Clive and Tricia

Today I found out my degree classification and I’m pleased to say that I gained a 2:1!!

Without the help from you this would of never happened, the money helped me no end and I can’t thank you enough!

I hope one day that I can repay it to you and to keep Lisa’s legacy going!

With love from a very grateful graduate!


Congratulations Garry, and thank you.
