The Holloway Bequest has provided bursaries for a number of students principally at Birmingham and Leicester Universities and the Camborne School of Mines at Exeter University. Some of the projects undertaken by the students will be illustrated together with an interesting variety of ways in which the fund’s money was used.
The Holloway Bequest has also supported visits to geological sites for school groups from primary schools to college groups illustrated by a video of a group visit to the CSM test mine.
