NOTICE – GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR CHILDREN
who were under the age of 12 years old on 1 January 2021
PARENTS of children resident in Blandford Forum only, (not periphery villages), who have a child/children who were under the age of 12 years old on 1 January 2021 are invited to apply for consideration of a grant from the TED George Fund.
Trustees will consider applications for grants for various uses, including help towards the cost of books, clothes, or educational trips for your child.
The grants available from this small fund will reflect the income from investments in any one year.
Tom Edward Dray George lived at The Laurels and then at Cedars in Park Road in Blandford. He was, among other things, a Grocer by trade. When he died, he left the sum of £5,000 to be invested into a Trust called The Blandford Children’s Fund. This sum has now increased somewhat, and it is the interest on that investment from which grants will be awarded.
Note: Please note that Trustees may wish to visit you and your child at your home as part of the process of this Application but will comply with current Government guidelines regarding Covid-19 restrictions and only do so if regulations allow.
For an Application Form please telephone in the first instance 01258 454717 or write or email by Tuesday 23 February 2021 to:
