The Herald’s Award is our longest running honorary award.
It is given by the Company’s Court to honour those who, in the opinion of the Court, have made a significant contribution to the charity sector.
This year’s recipient worked tirelessly to form and deliver the Livery Schools Link, a voluntary organisation whose mission is to assist children from less advantaged backgrounds to receive an enhanced educational experience at school and to have their personal aspirations raised, thereby increasing their employability and career options.
At our Spring Dinner the 2019 Herald’s Award was presented by Master Gavin Ellwood (left) to David Barker (right) from the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists and Chair of the Education and Training Committee.
Thanks to David The Livery Schools Link brings together volunteers from Livery Companies, membership organisations and employers to help schools with career talks, employability days, school clubs and school governance.
