During 2020, 107 grant applications were received in the year (118 received in 2019) and 83 grants were awarded totalling £50,446 (In 2019, 86 grants totalling £49,961 were awarded).
The Trustees keep running costs to a minimum and maintain their aim of providing a prompt response to applications, particularly where urgent circumstances warrant it. They meet monthly and grant decisions are usually given within six weeks of their receipt, depending on the meeting cycle.
The Trustees continue to retain a close control of the value of grants awarded, balancing these with erosion of the Trust capital, particularly in view of volatile markets in recent years.
