Good luck to Stephen scholarship hopefuls

The scholarship candidates with Sonia Watson, centre, from the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust

Sue Ryan and I had a very rewarding day on Thursday, meeting the candidates for the Stephen Lawrence scholarships at the Daily Mail. They all had a tour of the newsroom with chief reporter David Williams, met former trainees, had a good round-the-table discussion about the day's news and an enjoyable lunch. The Mail is offering two trainees a position on its training scheme, with a view to them getting a full-time job in the newsroom. The Mail has long-supported the family of Stephen, who was murdered at 18 in 1993. The shortlisted candidates will meet Stephen's mother, Doreen (now Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon). Good luck to all of them.
