June Ilott's legacy will improve the prospects of budding students from disadvantaged areas

We are thankful to our legacy supporters, past and present, who have continued their life’s story at Liverpool by making great things happen across the University and enhancing the lives of our students.

Caroline ‘June’ Annette Ilott, who sadly passed away in May 2020, was a passionate advocate of education. Lovingly known as ‘June’, she is remembered for her caring and cheerful nature and her devotion to teaching countless pupils who regarded her as both a friend and mentor.

June grew up in Wiltshire, surrounded by a loving family who, despite their own financial challenges, helped others in the community and encouraged June to further her education at St Katherine’s College, Liverpool. Inspired by her family’s kindness and her own life experiences, June left a gift in her Will to help budding students from disadvantaged areas. The University of Liverpool was privileged to be chosen by June’s remaining family to help fulfil her final wishes.

To honour June’s memory, her family have given their approval for June’s gift to support the inspiring work of Future Goals. This extraordinary partnership between LFC Foundation, Everton in the Community, the Steve Morgan Foundation, IntoUniversity and the University of Liverpool is dedicated to helping young people from disadvantaged areas across the region to realise their full potential through education. ●

We are over the moon to support the Future Goals partnershp project, but more importantly we know that June would have fully supported it too!
