“Mr Hollomby used to pop into the supermarket I worked in to drop off his shortbread, I have such fond memories of him asking how many had sold and chatting about the goings on in town- it means a lot to have received a Scholarship from the Hollomby Foundation, so thank you to everyone who made it possible, I cannot tell you how much it means!”
