Jane Carole Clarke Memorial: hardship award.

In February we asked for applications for three student hardship awards to help give a little support to students during their studies who were suffering financial difficulties due to Covid19.  Thanks very much to everyone who applied.

Congratulations to Lisa-Marie Harris and Ker Wallwork who each receive one of two awards of £650, and to Medb McPherson who was selected from the Masters of Fine Art course at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, to receive one award of £650.
The money was fundraised in May 2020, in memory of Jane Carole Clarke, a long-standing supporter of Banner Repeater, who very sadly passed away unexpectedly on 9th February 2020.  She picked up art, late, in her 50's, to become a great latent painter who drew like a sculptor.  She was an ardent supporter of the arts, often helping to raise money for fundraisers at Banner Repeater, and we wanted to carry on that tradition by supporting someone, a little, in her name.  Due to the wonderful generosity of those who contributed to the fundraiser in May 2020, there were three awards made possible for three students suffering financial hardship.
