Weston Anniversary Fund

We are thrilled that the Trustees have more than doubled their £5million commitment of the Weston Anniversary Fund to £11million.

Due to the unprecedented number of applications we received - over 2,300 with requests totalling almost £200million, the Trustees have increased the fund so that they can support over 150 charities through the Weston Anniversary Fund.

The Trustees were struck by the quality of applications and the breadth of vital work that local organisations are doing across the country to ensure that they are able to serve their local communities. Unfortunately due to the sheer volume of applications we received we have only been able to support a relatively small number, however we are thrilled that over 60% of applicants applied to us for the first time – we very much hope those which weren’t successful this time, will stay in touch with us and consider applying for a grant in the future.

We would like to say a huge ‘congratulations’ to the 156 successful Weston Anniversary Fund grantees and hope you will join us in wishing them the best of luck with their projects to provide new, or improve existing facilities to their local communities.

We have highlighted just a handful of the Weston Anniversary Fund projects here so you can get a flavour of what will be achieved across the UK. This short film gives a deeper insight into the difference the Weston Anniversary Fund has on the funded organisations, in particular -The Clock Tower Sanctuary.

Thank you to the thousands of charities that applied to us. We look forward to working with you in the future.
