making a difference to Redruth

Fred Harris Award

The Redruth Charity Trust was formed in 1935 for the purpose of the encouragement and support of bodies working in the Redruth area of a non-political and non-sectarian nature. It works for the provision of occupational, recreational and educational facilities for numerous groups and societies.

Since 2005 the Trust expanded its work to include  the 10 Junior Schools in the TR15-16 area.  This scheme is known as the Fred Harris Education Award in honour of Mr F.L.Harris who spent his lifetime working in education.

The Redruth Charity Trust were fortunate to have him as a Trustee from 1947 – 1990 during which time he held the posts of both Chairman and Secretary.

We invite nominations of a Year 6 pupil whom teachers deem suitable to receive this award. The pupil should have a positive approach to life and make every effort in both their school subjects and extra curricular activities.

The successful pupil will receive £50 in book tokens plus a framed certificate. The school will receive a cheque for £250, which the Trust requires they spend on books for the school library.

 The Chairman and a Trustee would like to attend your year end ceremony in July to make the presentation.

Closing date for this year is 10th June.

If you need any further information please call the secretary on 01209 213952 after 2pm.
