2015 Sir Richard Trant Memorial Award

2015 Sir Richard Trant Memorial Award

Nominations are still being invited to find the 2015 heritage champion for Cornwall in memory of the outstanding work of Sir Richard Trant.  The award is a trophy and a £500 cheque and carries with it the prestige of the name after which it is awarded. Sir Richard Trant was a Cornishman of extraordinary talents. After a very distinguished career in the Army he retired to his beloved Cornwall and dedicated his remaining years helping to promote Cornwall’s heritage both in Cornwall and much further afield. Cornwall Heritage Trust is looking to make this prestigious award to an ‘unsung hero or heroine’ – someone who gives their time and energy in a voluntary capacity and has made a significant contribution to Cornwall’s heritage. It is open to all organisations in the heritage field to nominate a suitable candidate. Each nomination should be supported by a recommendation from a senior member of the organisation outlining the nominee’s outstanding contribution to the preservation and promotion of Cornwall’s heritage. Letters of support can be provided from people with first-hand knowledge of the nominee who can endorse their contribution or supply additional information. Nominations will close on 31 July 2015. We will acknowledge receipt of your nomination.  However we cannot enter into correspondence on the merits of a particular nomination. The Memorial Committee will consider all applications and the Heritage Champion will be presented with the award at the Trust’s Annual General Meeting on 23 September 2015. For an application form please contact the Cornwall Heritage Trust office. All nominations should be sent to: Ms M Baker Administrative Secretary Cornwall Heritage Trust 5 Kerns...
