A Jersey musician has been awarded £55,000 to help save the island's native language.
Kit Ashton, from the band Badlabecques, was given the money from a UK-based body, so he can study how to keep Jerriais alive.
The money will fund a 3 year PhD with Goldsmiths College in London, covering fees and living costs.
Competition for the funding was strong, but the panel was impressed with Kit’s proposal, describing it as ‘outstanding.’
