Eric Swan Bursary

Eric Swan1 320x213 Eric Swan BursaryEric Swan was, to many in the Crewe area, one of the greatest influences in their lives. Saying that he was a teacher at Crewe Boys Grammar School, then a lecturer at South Cheshire College misses so much. It was the enthusiasm with which he guided and encouraged so many, often through sport and outdoor activities, that made him stand out. Voted ‘Wistonian of the Year’ and having sports facilities named after him were just two of the tributes that came his way during his lifetime.allsorts new camera 236 320x213 Eric Swan Bursary

We have created this bursary both to remember Eric and to create a legacy which, we feel, is fitting to the man he was. We are grateful to Eric’s family for supporting our efforts.

The Eric Swan Bursary has been established to provide assistance with funding for young people living in Crewe and the surrounding areas (CW postcode), who would otherwise be excluded, to attend outdoor activity courses at recognised outdoor activity centres (such as the Conway Centre in Anglesey).

Access to the funds is only available to schools, colleges and youth groups who are attending an outdoor activity centre on pre-booked courses or day visits. Individuals should not directly seek funds from the Up and Under Foundation.
