For those of you who have stayed in Malmesbury with Abbey Communication, you will know how committed and welcoming our hosts are, and some of you will also have known the wonderful Michael Foley. Sadly, Mike died earlier this year following a severe bout of pneumonia. Mike was a friend and advisor to us, having more than 20 years of experience of hosting with his wife Maureen. He was the epitome of a great host and he will be remembered by many of our course participants who had the pleasure to stay with him and benefit from his hospitality.
To celebrate our memories of Mike, we have created a Michael Foley Memorial Scholarship.
This will offer a week’s training and host family accommodation free of charge, each year to a person who would not otherwise have the opportunity to come to Malmesbury and develop their skills in Business English.
Applicants for the Scholarship may, for example, be someone currently unemployed who needs to improve their English to help with their job search, someone in a start-up organisation that has little budget for training or someone who has faced adversity in their journey of learning English for their career.
The scholarship will be awarded to a candidate that is known personally to one of our colleagues, clients or previous course participants.If you know of someone who you consider might benefit from this scholarship, please do ask them to get in touch with us and make an application.
