At Southampton Solent’s Graduation Ceremony on July 11th, Millie Vincent was presented with her award for Outstanding Achievement by Clive Wilson. Millie Graduated with a BA (Hons) Media Culture and Production with First Class Honours.
At a very hot ceremony at the Guildhall Southampton, two Honorary Doctorates were also awarded; Sean Yazbeck – a former student who went onto win the ‘The Apprentice” USA and is now CEO of several technology companies in the United States – was made an Honorary Doctor of Business, and John Wilson ACE – one of Britain’s leading well film editors who has received a Bafta for Downton Abbey and gained two HPA awards and two Emmy nominations plus many other Film and TV credits – was made a Doctor of Arts.
In November, a large number of guests attended the 13th Lisa Wilson Scholarship Bursary Award Presentations at Southampton Solent University.
Four of the six students who received the awards were on hand to be presented with their cheques by Trish and Clive Wilson (Lisa’s parents). As well as six new students, a further ten students this year receive bursaries for their continued studies. This now brings the total of students to receive support through the charity to over 90.
During the same week, Clive Wilson presented Heather Katy Lewis with the Lisa Wilson Award for Outstanding Achievement. Heather graduated with a BA (First Class Hons) in Popular Music Journalism.

The 13th Lisa Wilson Golf Day at Wellow on Saturday 25th was an overwhelming success. Whilst the weather had been atrocious on the Friday before, Lisa sent a lovely day of sunshine for the golfers to enjoy. With 100 Wellow members playing in the members tournament and 36 in the friends and guests competition the golf was really well supported.
Some 80 friends sponsors and guests came along for the evening meal and about the same number of members, filling the clubhouse with 160 for the prize giving and star cabaret.
Former Scholarship winner Charlotte Lystor spoke emotionally about her experience as a recipient of a Lisa Wilson Scholarship and the life changing way in which it had affected her life.
The star cabaret was performed by singer/songwriter and comedian, Steve Womack, who delivered an outstanding performance. The raffle raised £755 and the silent auction raised £1055. After the raffle,the singer and good friend entertained the audience with his usual smooth style and had everyone on the dance floor until the close at midnight.
With sponsorship and donations coming in at over £7000 plus members entry fees, the amount of money raised is expected to be in excess of £9000–another 9 years added to Lisa’s amazing legacy.
Thank you all for your amazing support.
