When Canon David Ricketts, Order of Niagara, retired as the insurance broker for the Diocese, an agreement was reached that if the diocese stayed with Pearson Dunn they would donate every year a sum of money in the name of the retired broker to a bursary fund.

The Canon David Ricketts Bursary received its first cheque this year.

It is an open fund to which others can donate and receive a charitable donation receipt.

The fund is to be administered by the diocesan bishop.
