Travelling Fellowship award for Sandra

A LARNE woman has been awarded with a Travelling Fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.

The purpose Fellowship is to widen an individual’s experience through overseas travel, while their Fellowship must also bring benefits to others in the UK through sharing the outcome of the travel experience.
