St David’s Day grants awarded to help two young people pursue Masters degrees
Two lucky grant recipients from the Wales in London Philanthropic Fund were announced at the annual St David’s Day Dinner in Guildhall.
Ffian Jones received a grant to help support her Masters degree in Menswear Design at the Royal College of Art. Ffian’s work revolves around using fashion as an opportunity to bring people together and she is passionate about revitalising the health and wellbeing of communities in the South Wales Valleys through her creations.
The second grant recipient, David Sinton, will be using the funding he has received to pursue a Masters degree at London School of Economics. His career ambitions are to help develop policies that can expand social mobility and further the opportunities available to individuals and groups from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Wales in London Philanthropic Fund, managed by Community Foundation Wales, supports young people who were born and/or educated in Wales to develop their education, learning, business and career skills, and broaden their horizons in London or outside Wales.
