The Development Trust welcomed CLA Charitable Trust trustees Neil Mainwaring, Andrew Grant and Trust Administrator Tahirih Mclaren-Brown to Harper Adams University. Members of the CLA Charitable Trust enjoyed a campus tour and visited the Elizabeth Creak Laboratories, Robotic Dairy Parlour and the Hands-Free-Hectare site, where project lead Kit Franklin gave a talk.
They also met with CLA Scholars, James Jay and Frances Houseman, who are both in their second year of the BSc (Hons) Rural Enterprise and Land Management degree programme.
Associate Head of Department for Land Management Susan Ragbourne said: “The visit provided a great opportunity for the CLA trustees, Neil Mainwaring and Andrew Grant, to catch up with the progress of their scholars, Jamie Jay and Fran Houseman, and for the scholars to meet the CLA President Tim Breitmeyer for the first time.”
“Students are under significant financial pressure these days and the support given by the CLA Charitable Trust scholarships is a tremendous benefit that allows talented students to maintain and enhance their careers”.
