“The Last Post Fund is a national charity and it actually started out as a result of a person who died, because he didn’t have the means to live…he was very destitute, Miller said. It’s very hard for us to say that but because of the COVID environment and social distancing. “That’s the plane that they used to train pilots in, and it will conduct a fly-pass, which is fitting because this is the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two. Our donors made a real difference in our students’ lives during a very difficult time.”.

The Emergency Student Bursary was created, and a call went out to the U of L community to throw its support behind the new fund as well as the existing International Student Bursary. We strive to achieve the highest ethical standards in all that we do.

The national charity has volunteers work to provide proper burials for deceased veterans whose families may not have the means to do so themselves.

Initially, two satellite events were planned to take place at Mountain View Cemetery and Battery Point at Henderson Lake. In the early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U of L says many students lost part-time jobs and were struggling to make ends meet – all while trying to complete a semester that had been shifted to an online platform due to the health crisis. “That’s the plane that they used to train pilots in, and it will conduct a fly-pass, which is fitting because this is the 75 th anniversary of the end of World War Two.

Strong donor support helps out over 20 U of L students struggling through pandemic.

It’s important for us who are both veterans and civilians who are members of the Last Post Fund to give back to those who served.”.
