As a young farmer, I appreciated the encouragement and advice offered
by Dick Harrison. I admired his enthusiastic style and his professional
and honest business manner.
I was honoured to be asked to be a
Trustee of the fund. The standard of applicants receiving grants
would have given him much satisfaction.
I have been a Trustee since 1998 and really
enjoy the opportunity to meet applicants; although they range in
age, stage of their career, personal interests and background they
all share a passion for the rural landscape.
Being Dick Harrison’s younger daughter, I am well aware of
his love of the countryside and the value he placed on education
and personal development. I do see it as most fitting that this Trust
has been set up in respect for his work within agriculture and his
passion for livestock auctioneering.
