The club committee is delighted to launch the inaugural Old Abbotsholmians’ Club Travel Award - a new iteration of the old APA Travel Award. The award will help ensure a new generation of young OAs still in full-time education will be able to fulfil their travel ambitions in a way that will benefit both them and the wider world.
The committee will award 1,500GBP to the young OA whose application it determines best meets one or more of the following aims:
1. Increasing knowledge – either connected to the applicant's studies or some area of personal interest; or 2. Protecting nature – taking part in an environmental project; or 3. Challenging yourself – by undertaking an expedition; or 4. Social responsibility – taking part in a social project for the benefit of others.
The travel award is open to any OA aged 18-25 at the time of submitting an application, and who commits to travelling in the summer of 2020.
Do you ever wish you hadn’t tried to organise a memorial cricket match slap bang in the middle of the Cricket World Cup? This is what comes of non-aficionados of the game looking after the admin; we discover many of you cricket tragics - most significantly Andrew and Richard Sederman themselves - are already booked up!
We want to make sure as many of you as possible can celebrate Derek’s life through the medium of his favourite sport, cricket, so we’ve decided to postpone the match until next summer. We’ll liaise with the school to provide a date as soon as we can.
