Builder donates £1 million to student scheme

About £1 million pounds has been left to a student scheme with the intention to help, “the man on the street”, to aid non-privileged students at the University of East Anglia. The donor was William Hamlin, a builder who also rented five homes to students in Norwich. He died at the age of 76 in 2013. The donation will enable students to apply and bid for funding to kick start their business ideas. UEA’s vice-chancellor Prof David Richardson, said Mr Hamlin’s donation will enable students from all backgrounds to, “create good in the world for many generations to come”. Students from less advantaged financial backgrounds can apply for a portion of UEA Enterprise Fund – from £7,500 to £50,000. Students will also be able to pitch business ideas to a group of professionals and UEA alumni in order to secure funding.
