It’s been an honour and a delight in the last couple of months to have several of our young Police Legatees come in (or zoom in) to the office to be presented with scholarships.
We are very grateful to Commissioner Fuller for making time in his busy schedule to come in and personally present the awards to Joshua Small.
Joshua is a keen rugby player and sports person, and he too has taken on a role model and leadership role for younger Legatees.
