Weʼre raising £500 to support the Arthur Belluomo Prize for Modern Foreign Languages
- Taunton, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Arthur loved learning languages and planned a career in international relations. Wherever he was living, Arthur always worked hard to learn the local language, and with varying degrees of success he learned Spanish, German (for which he won a best student award in middle school), Arabic, Farsi and Vietnamese.
Arthur attended Richard Huish College in Taunton. At his parents' request, the school has agreed to award an annual prize in Arthur's name for outstanding students of modern foreign languages.
An oak plaque has been custom made and will be issued annually during the college's annual gala event. The name of the winner will be inscribed on the prize plaque along with a cash scholarship to buy books.

This is just such a wonderful cause. Arthur was a very inspiring man who always had time for people who needed help or felt out of their depth whether it was academically, socially or otherwise.
