STUDENTS and organisations across Bromsgrove who need financial help are being reminded of a historic town trust aimed at lending a helping hand.
The Bromsgrove Institute, which was established in 1893 and became a Trust in 2001, seeks to support and promote education across the district.
The trust, which has awarded grants in the region of £100,000, can be accessed by further and higher education students who have lived in Bromsgrove for one year or whose parents are resident in the district and are in need of financial assistance.
The trust can only award grants to those over 16 years of age.
Organisations can also submit applications for educational projects which ‘improve the quality of life for Bromsgrove inhabitants’.
Previous grants have funded a variety of projects, including creating disabled access for buildings, providing sheet music and music stands with lights, funding for Organ Scholarships and funding for a drama based course.
Trustees are currently looking for new applicants to receive the cash grants.
Those wanting to apply should visit www.bromsgroveinstitutetrust.org or write to the clerk of the trustees, Joan Holland, at Bromsgrove Institute Trust c/o Thomas Horton Solicitors, Strand House, 70 The Strand, Bromsgrove, B61 8DQ.
