Fr Ken Freeman Memorial Scholarship

Fr Ken Freeman Memorial Scholarship

By In Pokot On October 7, 2010


On Monday I was able to send Fr David Conway the sum of £1500 for his work at the Barpello Mission in East Pokot, Kenya.  It was made up of £700 from donations from members of the Pound a Week Group and £800 from the Fr Ken Memorial Fund.

The £800 is being used to create a Fr Ken Freeman Memorial Scholarship which will pay the fees for a student for the full four years at the Mission’s secondary school which Fr David built.  Fr David will award the scholarship to a boy or girl whom he considers most deserving and will let us know the name of the student in due course.  In addition, from next year onwards and God willing, I will send £200 (plus any price increase) from the Pound a Week donations so that the scholarship can be awarded each year to another student, again in memory of Fr Ken. The scholarship was agreed by the Parish Pastoral Team as a continuing memorial to our late and much loved priest.

I will update the parish when I have news from Fr David.
