C E Gourley VC Endowment Fund


The C E Gourley VC Charity was founded in 1919 by public donations to commemorate the award of the Victoria Cross to Sergeant Gourley who served in the First World War. He was educated at Calday Grange Grammar School and Gourley’s Lane which runs from Grammar School Lane to Column Road is also named after him.


The Charity awards university scholarships to students of Calday Grange and other secondary schools in West Kirby and Hoylake area of £50 p.a. over a three year period and has a small annual income of a few hundred pounds.
