John Mather Awards


The John Mather Charitable Trust rewards former Ayrshire College students who have learned a trade and gone into employment or set up their own business within the past year. Those fortunate enough to be eligible for a John Mather award receive a set of tools to help them in their careers.

The event is a celebration of the former students’ hard work and gives their family, friends and employers the opportunity to share their pride in their efforts.

in 2017, 99 former college students collected their awards on the night from the John Mather Charitable Trust’s Trustee Marlynn Mackay, who shared fond memories of her close friend John Mather in her speech.

The date for the 2018 ceremony is Wednesday 7 March at the Kilmarnock Campus - more details to follow.
