The donations are for educational purposes. In the past the Trust has awarded donations for University or further education, for the purchase of tools, instruments or books or for study of music or other arts. Allowances can be used for educational visits abroad or to assist with education and training for employment. In the past donations have been given towards the cost of school trips where low income families are unable to afford to pay for them. Donations are usually in the region of £500.

The Trustees welcome applications from any candidate who can fulfill any of the above criteria, however are also pleased to hear from candidates who might wish to apply for any assistance towards any educational activity.
