I am writing to thank you for your wonderful support. The financial assistance The Women’s Section has provided me over the years has kept me afloat as opposed to sinking, and made such a difference to my life. I thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart.
Mrs Lovegrove, Sussex
Having recently finished my A Levels, I would like to thank you for the exceptional support you have given me throughout my secondary education. The quality of education that the scholarship has allowed me to enjoy has fundamentally affected my development as a young man. It has provided me access to wonderful teachers who have helped inspire academic passion within me. It is that very support that has enabled me to secure a place to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Balliol College, Oxford. The knowledge that your faith in me allowed this dream to become a reality is something I will never forget, and for which I am eternally grateful.

I am so pleased that the Women’s Section Allowance will continue for another year. I am so very grateful for this stipend as it helps me pay for my day-to-day living expenses, and with food and heating costs getting more expensive, it makes a big difference. With my husband wounded in the Second World War and unable to sustain an income, I have never had a lot of money – so I thank you sincerely for all the support you have provided me and continue to.
Mrs A Harrison, West Yorkshire
I would like to express my sincere thanks to all in The Women’s Section for awarding me with this bursary. It has meant that I have been able to concentrate fully on my studies and it has also given me the security of knowing that I am able to afford my weekly food bill, as my student loans leave very little to live on. Thank you all very much for you help.
James Wright, recipient of the President’s Award Scheme
Thank you for the support, kindness and generosity you have shown by paying for my TV license. I was so touched it reduced me to tears. It has made a world of difference to me, more than you can know. Thank you.
Mrs S. Hooper, Torquay
What a lovely surprise to receive a card and gift on my 83rd birthday. I do thank you and for the help you have given me and are still giving me. It means a lot to me to know that I have some support as it isn’t easy living on state pension and benefits. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
