1955:

As an en­cour­age­ment to con­tinue their stud­ies at evening classes and in recog­ni­tion of good ex­am­i­na­tion re­sults and at­ten­dances, nearly £ 400 was dis­trib­uted in bonus awards to 160 ap­pren­tices of Newton Cham­bers and Co. in Sh­effield. MD Sir Harold West said: “We are pre­sent­ing th­ese awards a week be­fore the works’ an­nual hol­i­day be­cause we find that in a great num­ber of cases the girls and boys are al­lowed by their par­ents to keep most of the money for their hol­i­days.”
