The General Lascelles Memorial Grants 2017
18 December 2017
The purpose of the Lascelles Memorial Trust is to assist highly promising young athletes from any recognised sporting division of the International Water Ski & Wakeboard Federation to win medals at European and World Championships.
Each year the Guardians of the Trust make a number of awards to applicants from the bequest left to BWSW by our past president, Major General Anthony Lascelles, CB, CBE. The 'General', as he was known, showed a huge interest in the sporting achievements of our young skiers and riders and paid a personal interest in their successes as they developed. He wished for some of his estate to go towards assisting them achieve their goals in International competitions.
At the end of the 2017 season, we were very impressed with the record number and quality of the applications received, all of whom we would have loved to have supported. Thank you all for submitting your application and if you have been unfortunate that you have not received a grant this year, please do not give up or be disheartened. There is always next year!
