I am delighted and somewhat humbled to announce that I have been awarded a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to research and experience horticultural therapy practices in North America.
The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust funds people to travel and visit places carrying out best practice in their professional field. The Trust started after the death of Winston Churchill and people have been travelling under the Trust since the 1960’s. At present the Trust offers 125 fellowships each year.
This is generally the main reason things have gone a little quite on this blog recently as I have been organising flights, accommodation and visits.
In order to raise the profile of the Winston Churchill Trust and not to hijack this one I have set up a separate blog which will document my thoughts, feelings and findings as I progress throughout the project. This blog can be found here: http://thetravellinght.wordpress.com/
More information on the Churchill Trust can be found here: www.wcmt.org.uk I fully recommend looking at the website and considering an application. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with, very supportive and understanding throughout.
