Good wishes from Jenny Featherstone
15th January 2017
Jenny Featherstone

Jenny Featherstone sends her good wishes for the New Year 2017 to all at Bennochy Church. Our Harvest Collection of £401 is so gratefully received; it can cover a course for one student this academic year, starting now (January). She has been very troubled of late with fraud in her Finance Department, eventually having to dismiss two members of Staff. Hopefully the College can now move on into the new academic year on a more solid footing. Further news in Spring.
