Joyce Hatton was a teacher who, for many years, ran a shop at meetings and conferences,
including those of the Liverpool Mathematical Society. The shop sold books and other
items of a mathematical nature or in some way related to mathematics. On her death,
she left her remaining stock to the Society, which has continued to run the shop at
the Challenge and Senior Challenge prizegiving evenings and the final MEM masterclass.
The Joyce Hatton Memorial Bursaries were created in her name and have been supported
from the proceeds of the shop. Responsibility for the award of these bursaries has now been passed
to the newly registered charity Liverpool Mathematical Society Bursary Fund, which has been set up as an
Charitable Incorporated Organisation with initial
funding provided by the Liverpool Mathematical Society. The trustees include the Secretary and
Treasurer of the Liverpool Mathematical Society and at least three further appointed trustees.
Applications are invited The Liverpool Mathematical Society Bursary Fund welcomes applications from Mathematics teachers, student teachers trainee teachers, college and university students, and school pupils for support to assist with mathematical activities such as events in schools or the local community, attending events with a mathematical basis.

One criterion, very much Recent successful bids have included the setup costs of school Maths Clubs, a permanent outdoor Maths Trail, mathematical playground equipment and an inter-school competition.
In keeping with the
beliefs wishes of Joyce Hatton, is that the activities supported should we favour projects which focus on the enjoyment and enrichment of
mathematics. mathematics, and which have well-defined ongoing impact and/or lasting legacy benefits. We would not ordinarily support applications seeking funds for curriculum development or delivery (such as MyMaths subscriptions) or Conference attendance. We can support one-off events, but would expect evidence of ongoing impact.
We are happy to consider applications from across the UK and the Isle of Man. However, as a charity based in Liverpool, we will afford priority when oversubscribed to applications from Merseyside and the surrounding area.
