3rd May 2016, marked the 30th anniversary of the tragic and untimely death of respected maltster Tim Macpherson, his wife Mouse and their youngest daughter Iona.

Out of this senseless tragedy was born The Macpherson Memorial Trust, a scheme which allows people of any age who are employed in the Malting, Brewing and Distilling industries in the UK to apply for an award of up to £1,000 for personal development.

The Macpherson trustees feel it is a most appropriate time to highlight the opportunities which the Trust offers.

See link – http://ukmalt.com/macpherson-trust – which gives direct access to the pages of The Macpherson Trust on the MAGB website and is a reminder of the opportunities available to those in our industry.

Since the start of 2016 the trustees have granted 3 awards, enabling UK industry employees to develop their skills, both personal and professional. Every application is read by each of the 7 trustees, and carefully considered on individual merit before a majority/unanimous decision is reached.
