As a result of the many generous donations made in memory of Ron and with additional support from Alton Sports, his widow Shirley and Aldershot, Farnham and District Athletic Club are pleased to announce this memorial bursary.
Running initially for a term of 5 years the bursary will be awarded annually by the club to the under 17 years old athlete judged most deserving in terms of effort, achievement, need – or any combination of these three criteria.
The selection will be made jointly by the club Chairman, President and an independent trustee; who will assess nominations submitted from within the club membership.
The award will be £350 Alton Sports Voucher together with a commemorative certificate.
It is hoped that this bursary can be extended beyond the initial 5 year term; any ongoing donations or bequests would be welcomed to help facilitate this. These can be made at any time using the bank details :- AFD AC Sort Code 40-35-45 Account Number 31591967 ( adding the payment reference 'Ron').
