Fund opens to help Diss students

A foundation that distributed more than �20,000 last year to help further young people's education has opened the application process for this year.

The Taylor and Hammond Educational Foundation trustees meet twice a year to give funding to people under the age of 25, who attended school in Diss.

Funding has been used to help with university expenses, hairdressing equipment, veterinary medicine books and equipment, Duke of Edinburgh award expenses, childhood studies, tourism management, sports equipment, catering equipment, and saddlery tools.

For an application form, write to Pat Simms at 3 Riverside, Norfolk, IP22 4BE. The closing date for completed applications is September 16.
