Trace Richey Nursing Scholarship expands its horizons
Imagine cooking lunch for over 80 people including three types of curries, sandwiches, cakes and cookies and then, a few days later, taking on the 14km City2Surf. That’s exactly what the AMP Technology and Operations team did, and they raised over $10,000 for the Trace Richey Nursing Scholarship that gives nurses the chance to study the Master of Cancer and Haematology Nursing course at the University of Sydney.
Arrow Vice-Chairman, Neil Pennock, established the Trace Richey Nursing Scholarship after experiencing first-hand the care provided by haematology nurses and said: “I saw the incredible work the nurses do up close and personal when Trace went through his bone marrow transplant and was left with more love, respect and gratitude than he ever knew possible. One of the nurses who cared so lovingly for Trace shared how she wanted to study for this very Masters course at the University of Sydney but couldn’t afford it, so the Trace Richey Nursing Scholarship was established.”
Neil said this was the most thoughtful way of showing his appreciation and leaves Trace with a legacy that continues to honour his memory by helping so many more nurses into the future.
