Harland Dooks Bursary

This $1000 Bursary was established in 2000 in memory of Harland Maurice Dooks of Head of Jeddore who, since a young child,  had volunteered and raised funds for Twin Oaks/ Birches and many other community organizations.  At the time of his passing in 1999, due to poor health, at the age of 52, Harland was a member of our Foundation and the bursary was named in his honour.

The Bursary is presented annually by the Twin Oaks/Birches Heath Care Charitable Foundation  to any worthy Grade XII graduate and is intended to assist young women and men who are interested in furthering their education.

Volunteer activity with Twin Oaks/ Birches as well as other community organizations, personal character, and financial need are all considered in determining the merit of the applicant.
