A BURSARY named in memory of a campaigning health worker will help a nurse continue her studies.

Anita Savage-Grainge, a community outreach mental health nurse based in Northallerton, has been awarded the Jean Harrison Memorial Bursary. The £1,000 bursary was established in memory of Jean Harrison, a nurse who campaigned for fairer working conditions for health workers, before dying of cancer.

Ms Savage-Grainge said she was delighted. "The money will help me to carry out work for my master's degree in psycho-social interventions, as I research whether people's quality of life deteriorates when psychotic symptoms are present."

The bursary was awarded at the annual conference of public sector union Unison.
