Named in memory of CBI’s former patron and long-time friend of the organisation, the award provides aid to schools who have a lack of funding available to buy books for their students.

“We chose schools where there was a clear need for the books, and where we felt the libraries would have a significant impact on the students,” said Elaine Ryan, director of CBI.

The presentation of the award took place on Wednesday in St Mark’s
