 Help the next generation

live and learn.

You can help to support the work of the Trust.


We have a huge impact on the lives of students at Cardiff University, helping them to complete their courses and take their places in socially useful professions - such as medicine, education and engineering.

We make financial grants to students who find themselves in financial difficulties. Many are unable to rely on help from their parents, who may be dead, or ill, or poor themselves. Some students are trying to study and bring up their families at the same time. Rising housing, utilities and transport costs are hard to manage on fixed grants. Many of the students whom we have helped in the past tell us that without our contributions they would not have been able to continue studying.

Since the Trust was established we have helped hundreds of students.

We have very low administrative costs.


Our main expenses are professional services to meet statutory requirements for the charity. These are entirely met from the original foundation.


We have no accommodation costs and no paid staff, so every penny donated to us is used for grants to students.


Calling all our alumni grantees:

The recession and cuts in funding have reduced the Trust's income

and made students even poorer.

We are trying to trace all the students we helped from 1990 -1996

Help us to support the next generation of students

and tell us what you are doing now.
