MMEP funding 2019 student trip to China

NUAST China Cheque

Barry Woodhead, the Provincial Charity Steward, recently visited the NUAST Academy to present the first of two cheques for the 2019 group of students to go to China in the autumn; the MMEP contribution will allow students from more challenging backgrounds the opportunity of the visit. The timing of the required deposits, so soon after Christmas, has previously precluded a number of students from joining the trip, so the MMEP decided to give part of the money in Februaryand the second part later in the year when final payments are due.
