Jack lands town arts award
5:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in News
AN arts student has been awarded the £250 Ray Steadman Bursary at Pershore’s Number 8 Community Arts Centre.
Jack Finch, aged 18, from Drakes Broughton, was presented with the prize by Sally Steadman, Ray’s widow and one of the centre’s founders.
The bursary award which bears his name is given annually to young people pursuing further study in the fields of drama, music or art and is designed to help support costs of books and course materials.
Applications for the bursary were open to anyone living in the WR10 postcode area and Jack was selected from a number of applicants. He has just begun a foundation course in art and design at Hereford College of Arts.
Ray Steadman, a former Pershore town councillor who died in 2008, was one of the ‘fabulous five’ who helped to turn Number 8 from dream into reality. The bursary was started in memory of his passion for the arts and the development of young people.
