Mr Studdert-Kennedy has lectured in agriculture at Shuttleworth College for over 15 years and has taught a number of students who have attended Shuttleworth for the Marshal Papworth 10-week Short Course.

He said: “I have been involved with the fund since 2012, outside of my teaching engagements, and believe the work it does really sets it apart from other charities.

“As a lecturer, I can ensure the students are being taught the most up-to-date information in the most current and effective manner.”

The Marshal Papworth Fund is wholly managed by the East of England Agricultural Society and has already helped improve the lives of over 120 students from developing countries through its Masters Programme and 10-week Short Course.
