£460raised of £500 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £460 to Fund the Len Marsh Award for Academic Progression in the field of Initial Teacher Training.

    Lincoln, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 14th October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    The Alumni of Bishop Grosseteste University are establishing an award in Memory of Professor Len Marsh Principal of Bishop Grosseteste College for 22 years (1974-1996).


    On the run up to graduation, academics who teach on the Initial Teacher Training courses will be asked to nominate suitable students who have made real academic progression throughout the duration of their course. Proposals (name and a short brief on why they are being nominated) will be judged by the Head of School for Teacher Development. The winner will receive the prize money (as decided by the donating alumni) and be recognised during their graduation ceremony and also in the graduation programme.

    This way Len's name will live on at BG.

      Hi everyone, we are nearly over our target. We have £410 here on Just Giving and £100 is about to come in by direct deposit to me. So we will have hit our original target next week. Just so you know Just Giving do charge for their service so we need to raise more than the £500 e.g. Amount collected: £500.00 JustGiving 5% fee: £25.00 Processing costs (1.25%): £6.25 Net total: £468.75 If anyone want to make a direct donation outside of JustGiving please get in touch. Thanks
