Trace Richey Nursing Scholarships

Arrow director, Neil Pennock, introduced the Trace Richey Nursing Scholarships in memory of his partner, Trace Richey.

Trace Richey was a fun-loving, cheeky man with a wicked sense of humour and a heart of pure gold. He had a tremendous passion for helping others and as a professional fundraiser he worked tirelessly for a variety of charities.

In 2014 Trace was diagnosed with MDS and a year later, aged just 50, he died of acute graft vs host disease, following a bone marrow transplant.

This scholarship, for nurses working in the field of bone marrow transplants, was founded by Trace’s family and friends to honour his memory – and show their eternal gratitude to the nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney, who so tirelessly and lovingly cared for Trace.

The nurses made such a difference to Trace’s stay in the hospital. They made a HUGE difference to his last few months. It takes a really special person to work in the field of haematology oncology, so this is our thanks to them.

It is very important we honour Trace’s memory and introduce him to future nurses, putting smiles on new faces, ensuring he is never forgotten.”
