Trade union stalwart’s £4,000 bequest to students trust

The New Blackmore Vale Magazine News

Farmworkers’ hero and trades union stalwart Ernie Amey, who during his life secured over a million pounds for workers in compensation claims and died aged 90 in June 2014, left nearly £4,000 in his will to the John Paulley Trust.

The trust, established in the name of the former Blandford teacher and educationalist who lived in Durweston, supports students with special needs, assists students with sporting ability to obtain high-level coaching, recognises effort and progress schoolwide, and specifically the effort and progress made by students at Durweston School.

Sally Wilson, head teacher at The Blandford School, and Mrs Cross, both trustees of the John Paulley Trust, in The Blandford School’s latest newsletter have thanked the executor of Mr Amey’s estate for the £3,974.76 donation, saying they were very grateful for his contribution.
