About Our Trust

Our Trust was established in 1985 with the defined purpose of donating funds to help and support charities, both national and local, and other deserving causes, provided that direct benefit was forthcoming for people who live in Hull or the East Riding of Yorkshire.

East Riding of Yorkshire

Donations will not be made for education, political or religious purposes. Participation by young people under the age of 18 years, in UK or overseas visits or projects with a leading organisation will be considered. Requests for notable buildings with a good level of community use will be evaluated.

For significant community projects demanding major fund raising, support may be given by way of pledge, payment being conditional upon all other funds being sourced. Funding of both capital and revenue costs will be considered.
