The Harringworth Educational Trust was established in 1883 by local farmers and landowners to create an income for the education of children in the local village school and to fund books and activities. Small parcels of land were rented out and the income given to the Trust. Today, the Trust continues to help children and students in education, sports training and apprenticeship schemes by offering financial support towards books, technology and tuition in the form of an annual contribution towards these activities. The Trust also offers an annual heating grant to pensioners in the village who wish to apply.
We have given grants for a wide range of applications including:
- apprenticeships for thatching;
- purchase of tools for apprenticeships;
- assistance towards technology purchases;
- work experience in farming;
- music lessons;
- sports lessons and memberships;
- educational books;
- higher education and university book funds; and
- annual heating grants for pensioners.
The Trust has an annual income of £3,000 and our income has to be distributed in order to meet the requirement of the Charities Commission. We need applications so that we can allocate the funding every year so please apply.
