From Cornwall Heritage Trust:
Sir Richard Trant Memorial Award
For contribution to a particular aspect of Cornwall’s history.
It is 5 years since Cornwall Heritage Trust instituted the Sir Richard Trant Memorial Award to be given to an individual who had made a significant contribution to a particular aspect of Cornwall’s history.
Recipients of the award from 2009 to 2013 have been:
All the recipients of the award have achieved a standard of excellence in a field of study completely different from their “day job”. Each winner is an example of modest and unassuming dedicated scholarship and represents Sir Richard Trant’s own definition of “unsung heroes of heritage”.
Help Nominate our Heritage Champion for 2014
Sir Richard Trant was a Cornishman of extraordinary talents. After a very distinguished career in the Army he retired to his beloved Cornwall and dedicated his remaining years helping to promote Cornwall’s heritage both in Cornwall and much further afield.
Cornwall Heritage Trust is looking to make this prestigious award to an ‘unsung hero or heroine’ – someone who gives their time and energy in a voluntary capacity and has made a significant contribution to Cornwall’s heritage. It is open to all organisations in the heritage field to nominate a suitable candidate.
Each nomination should be supported by a recommendation from a senior member of the organisation outlining the nominee’s outstanding contribution to the preservation and promotion of Cornwall’s heritage.
Nominations will close on 30 June 2014.
The Memorial Committee will consider all applications and the Heritage Champion will be presented with the award at the Trust’s Annual General Meeting on 28 September 2014.
The award is a trophy and a cheque for £500 and carries with it the prestige of the name after which it is awarded.
