David Colegrave bursaries bring a small bounty to horticulture students

Eight horticulture students have received hundreds of pounds worth of help with their training after winning educational bursaries.

The students of horticulture and design at Writtle College were awarded £250 each from the David Colegrave Foundation, a trust that supports horticulture students.

The eight are studying courses ranging from further and higher education to postgraduate level courses.

They are Tegan Rochfort, Charlotte Rodick, Ginta Smilginite, Megan Garwood, William Gatenby, Anna Lukaszewska, Collen Mutema and Joseph Iacobucci.

This year the Colegrave Foundation awarded £7,000 to 31 students across the UK. Its aim is to promote education and research into ornamental horticulture.

To date over £75,000 has been provided to support students from colleges across the UK and Northern Ireland.

Writtle, a 118-year-old college and partner of the University of Essex, is a specialist provider of higher and further education in horticulture, design and other sectors.
