Pizza manufacturer offers university bursary

Leyland-based
pizza manufacturer Schwan’s has introduced a scheme enabling its employees to
apply for a £1,000 bursary to support a child or grandchild at university.

Five
such grants will be provided under the scheme which is open to all staff.
Similar schemes will run at the company’s sites in France and Germany.

 Gary Rae, European HR director, said:
"At Schwan’s we appreciate how hard our staff work and like to demonstrate
our appreciation in a variety of ways, such as through official policies or fun
events.

"The
bursary scheme extends this approach and enables us to make a difference to the
whole family. The money is provided by a special fund set up by Schwan’s
specifically for this purpose."

All
members of staff are eligible to apply and the scheme is also open to adopted
children and grandchildren.
