Repeat grants awarded – a ballet dancer, windsurfer & English teachers

Patrick Ryan

The Trust has chosen to support these recipients for another year:

Patrick Ryan (20) from Motherwell, is completing his second year at the English National Ballet School (ENB) in London. This follows a challenging first year at the world-renowned institution, with a step-up in training and rigorous assessments, including the end of year show.

Andrew Brown (15), from Glasgow, continues to excel in his windsurfing career, as one of the best junior windsurfers in the UK. KSMT helped Andrew purchase new equipment to enable him to meet his aim and move from the U17 to U20 Youth Olympic windsurf class. Highlights this season included the Dutch Youth Regatta and the European Championships in Latvia.

The Stirling School of English has received a further grant for the language instruction it provides to around 350 non-English speakers. The tutors, all of whom are volunteers, help local migrant workers, university students’ dependants and immigrants, gain a better grasp of English.
