George provided very generously in his will with the formation of the George Daniels Educational Trust, chaired by Clockmaker Liveryman David Newman, helping the BHI and the Clockmakers’ Company to promote and encourage horological training, and supporting Post Graduate education at City University. There is now substantially more money available, than we have ever had before, to help clockmakers-to-be to learn their trade. The George Daniels Educational Trust Advisory Committee is a joint BHI / WCC initiative set up to discuss and make recommendations to the Trustees on all matters concerning horological education, and to recommend and implement the decisions. It is chaired by Clockmaker Past Master David Poole.
