Melton students preparing for university are being invited to apply for funding to pay for equipment and books they will need.

The Sir Richard Raynes Foundation, a small registered charity based in the town, has for the past 25 years offered grant aid to students going to university for the first time.

Foundation secretary, Colin Beavis, said: “Over the last 10 years we have paid out a total of £45,800.

“These grants are not means tested.

“Students simply need to get an application and submit it with receipts or other evidence of purchases made and the foundation will make a payment subject to the conditions of the offer.”

For this year’s students, applications can be made up to January 31, 2019.
