A CHORISTER scholarship scheme at Hereford Cathedral has received an £8,000 boost from a national education charity.

The grant, from the Ernest Cook Trust (ECT), goes to Hereford Cathedral's Perpetual Trust which supports boys in becoming choristers and helps maintain Hereford’s choral tradition.

The £8,000 will support a chorister for a year in the cathedral choir.
