The Trust was formed to look after money donated to a fund
in memory of Lynne Grundy. This initial fund was invested
with the Charities Aid Foundation and forms the core of our
grant giving ability. It is increased by interest on the invested
funds and additional donations. The Trust is a registered
charity, and has no other activity or purpose than the giving
of grants to individual students and scholars in the disciplines
that Lynne was so committed to, thereby in some way continuing
Of every £10 donated to the Trust, £9.70 goes
directly to students and scholars in the form of awards. The
other 30p we spend on mailing the publicity cards and newsletter.
Your donation goes directly towards benefitting those who
Donations to the Trust are always very welcome. Every year,
more excellent candidates apply with important projects and
work that just isn't being funded by the system. This, plus
the fact that interest on the Trust's invested funds remains
low, means that every donation (on whatever scale) is enormously
important in continuing this increasingly vital support.
You can make a donation by cheque in any currency, made out
to Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust, and send it to:
Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust, 29 The Grove, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 1NE.
Please include the following declaration with your cheque,
and we'll do the rest:
"I am a UK taxpayer and
would like the Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust to treat all donations
I have made since 6 April 2004 (or relevant year) and any
future donations as Gift Aid donations therefore qualifying
for tax relief, until I notify you otherwise. I understand
that the tax the Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust claims on these
donations must not exceed the total amount which I pay in
any tax year."

You may cancel this declaration at any time by letting us
know in writing.
Please note that we never sell or pass on details of our mailing
list or donors under any circumstances. You don't need to
tick a box to ask us not to. We will only send you the Trust's
newsletter if you request it, and we don't do fundraising
