What a great idea! The Principal of the local Primary school writes
“Grade 6 Scholarship: We have received a very generous donation from the Cancer Support Group of Cobram, in memory of Lil McKean. Diana Bourchier, the group's facilitator, contacted me a while ago to ask for suggestions of how the group could provide an ongoing means for the community to remember Lillian's contribution to our school.
They have provided funds for a $200 annual scholarship to be awarded to a Grade 6 student who is “…hardworking, a good contributor, and in general a good community member of the school - all the qualities that Lilly had.” The money may be used to help get the student set up for secondary school.
The scholarship is funded by the group using money they received through the Ritchies Community Benefit scheme.
