Sir Winston Churchill grant given to Codicote woman
“WE make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,” – Sir Winston Churchill.
It may not be one of the most famous quotes made by the war-time Prime Minister, but it certainly is a poignant one.
And it is something Dr Elizabeth Jordan will keep on her mind as she treks across America and Hong Kong to endeavour into cross-cultural lessons on parental involvement in education, thanks to a grant provided by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
The Codicote woman, who had to go for an in-depth interview to receive the grant, said: “I applied because I am very active in the local community.
“I work with parents, particularly helping them with their children in regards to schooling,” she said.

Elizabeth has lived in the area for 13 years.
