Glass in Society projects have been taking place across the UK now for over thirty years, where primary and secondary schools apply for funding to purchase glass related equipment to allow them to offer a more rounded view of science for their students. This has proven to be most successful where group of schools or academies have applied to the charity fund, and then share the resource between them. Quite recently a group 19 schools in Cornwall applied for a grant to fund telescopes at a cost of just under £3,000 – over 5000 students now benefit from the assistance given.
Glass Sellers Award
Michael had been an avid supporter of Glass Engravers and had worked with Katharine over many years along with a long list of other Glass Engravers. He had supported the Guild of Glass Engravers as well as the Company’s Charity Fund.
The now launched Annual Lecture will honour his memory and will raise funds for the Glass Sellers Charity. This year’s lecture has raised enough to support more that 3 Glass in Society Projects that run nationwide and enables through a Glass related project the ability for children to learn the ‘Wonders of Glass’.
