For the Financial Year to 31st March 2019 the Foundation awarded £23,000 in Bursaries to students at Hinchingbrooke, St Peter's and Huntingdon Regional College.
These awards ranged in value from £100 to £1500 and around 60 students in the Huntingdon area benefited from these awards. The majority of the awards were to support the cost of School Trips to various destinations and a number were also to help towards the cost of equipment.
A number of former students from the Schools were also awarded grants to assist in the purchase of various pieces of equipment especially laptops to help them with their further education studies. Applications can be received from students up to age 25.
The Foundation also supports local community groups and over the past 18 months has supported Huntingdon Gym, Escape Youth Group, Crossroads Care, The Kite Trust , Link for Change, Crossroads Care, Grafham Water Centre and OHA Concerts with total grants of £36,750.
The Foundation welcomes applications from local community groups and Trustees will consider applications on 20th November 2019, 18th March 2020 and 15th July 2020.
