How Apak Group are making a difference
"Supporting computing students at UWE Bristol is the perfect fit with the business of our main benefactor, Apak Group. I know Tony, the founder of Apak, would have been very proud. Every year we look forward to meeting 'our' students, and we enjoy hearing about how they get on."
Lin Papadopoullos Tony’s widow and Chair of Trustees, Tony Papadopoullos Charitable Trust
Financial systems specialists Apak Group wanted to set up a bursary to celebrate the memory of founder Tony Papadopoullos. So far it’s been a great success.
About Apak Group
Apak was founded in 1979 by Tony Papadopoullos and has grown to become a leading provider of specialist financial systems. The business, which now operates as Apak Group, is based just outside Bristol and supports the global asset finance and banking sectors.
The Tony Papadopoullos Bursary
When the original Apak business merged with the Sword group, two former Apak directors created the Tony Papadopoullos Memorial Trust with a donation from funds created from the merger.
UWE Bristol worked with the Trust to create the Tony Papadopoullos Bursary – financial help awarded to two high performing students studying an undergraduate course involving computing.
Apak Group continue to support the bursary through regular donations to the Memorial Trust. The team sees it as a very suitable memorial for Tony, and everyone at Apak Group appreciates the feel good factor of supporting successful students.
