Ivan Wright Awards

The late Ivan Wright, who was a bank manager and resident of Duffield, left a sum of money to set up an award scheme for pupils and ex-pupils of the William Gilbert Endowed School.

The trustees of the Ivan Wright Awards use the interest from that money to provide scholarships and bursaries for pupils and ex-pupils up to the age of 24 inclusive, awarding several thousand pounds each year.  Preference is given to those who live in Duffield, or whose parents are residents.

The address of the secretary to the trustees is:-

25 Ecclesbourne Avenue, Duffield, DE56 4GE
