The Trustees place their emphasis on assisting and supporting both individuals and educational establishments in the study of those subjects and the pursuit of those activities which, in the opinion of the Trustees, do not command adequate priority in education.
The types of project that are given priority are those that enrich the quality of life and widen horizons, encourage participation and appreciation of the arts, develop good citizenship and encourage help in the community and local environment. Assistance can be given to eligible persons with fees, travel, clothing, tools, books, etc., both at school, college or later.
Grants can be given to local schools in or substantially serving the benefit area for educational benefits not normally provided by the local authority.
