Richard Green Bursary Fund

£1,820 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 54 people in 9 months
Richard Green travelled with Travel2Palestine in 2013. The visit had a huge impact on him, and he had a huge impact on us! He believed that the best way to effect change was through educating, training and broadening the horizons of everyone involved in the political process, both in Palestine and here in the UK. So we are really pleased to be working with Richard's family and friends to set up a fund in his name.

This fund will enable young people involved in Labour politics to learn first hand about the situation, providing a lasting living legacy to our much missed friend and colleague.

Richard’s family have chosen to support Travel2Palestine as one way of remembering Richard, as this was a group he had loads of enthusiasm for.

Through Travel2Palestine, Richard's family and friends are going to part-fund one politically active young person annually for an educational trip to Palestine.

A note from Richard's Mum to everyone who has supported this bursary scheme. Thank you!

Hello all,
I thought I would keep you updated on how Richard’s fund for Travel2Palestine was progressing, as you were kind enough to help with donations earlier in the year.
There were finally thirteen applications for the visit, and Sara and Martin from Travel2Palestine, plus one of Ric’s close friends, held interviews and selected one young woman and one young man for this year. One is visiting with Travel2Palestine this September, and the other in November.
We were able to offer two visits this time as we had such a good response to Ric’s fund.
When they return, the youngsters will give five presentations to various groups about what they have seen and learnt. Perhaps it will be possible for one of these feedback sessions to be in Southampton. I’ll enquire about that.
I’m pretty sure that Richard would think this bursary was a positive idea. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped make this happen. It has certainly helped our family to have something so positive to focus on. I’m sure Ric would have a few jokes to make about the whole affair as well!

Love to you all,

Ric’s Mum, Gillian xxx
