The Bendon Bursary  – 5th January 2018

One year ago on January 5th Chris Bendon, a founder TCHC trustee, passed away.
After a career in education that spanned over 30 years, the trustees feel it is befitting to mark the anniversary of Chris’ death with this initiative – one that he certainly would have endorsed.

Today we launch the BENDON BURSARY. This is an annual award aimed at supporting the continuing professional development of staff at TCHC. Staff who are registered on a course of study will be able to apply for some financial contribution towards their course fees on an annual basis.

Trustees and management hope that the BENDON BURSARY will help to hold on to our existing committed staff and also attract high calibre staff in the future.

Even though salaries at the Centre are not as competitive as we would wish, staff are committed to their community and are attracted to the Centre’s mission that no-one is turned away. The trustees believe that this initiative is a very practical way to assist our truly dedicated staff who seek to improve their professional qualifications.

Further details will be posted on the website after the TCHC trustees’ meeting at the end of January.
