Donate in Memory of Malcolm Milne (OP 55-62)
Donate to the Shape the Future bursary campaign in memory of Malcolm Milne
In July 2021 a dedication ceremony was held to mark the installation of a new cricket scoreboard and plaque in memory of former pupil, teacher and Pixies Cricket Club stalwart Malcolm Milne.
During the ceremony, Headmaster Toby Seth referred to Malcolm’s love of cricket and his passion for helping to make Pocklington School more accessible to as many deserving students as possible, regardless of their background. Toby explained how Malcolm had played a key role in the planning of our new Shape the Future campaign and how we would be inviting members of our community to donate to the campaign in his memory.
OP Committee member Simon Spence (OP 74-81) originally suggested the idea, which received the full support of the OP Committee and of Malcolm’s widow Jill.
Simon said: ‘’Like anyone else who was taught by Mally Milne (as he was universally known!), I was struck by the fact that his enthusiasm for cricket was, if anything, even greater than his enthusiasm for geography! It is entirely fitting, therefore, that his contribution to life at Pock has already been marked by the splendid new cricket scoreboard. He was also a great believer in broadening the reach of a 'Pock' education as widely as possible and I am delighted that donations in his memory will go to the 'Shape the Future' campaign, which he was so instrumental in helping set up. I hope many OPs whose memories of him are as fond as mine will want to donate to it.’’
