Welcome to Georges Trust, on the site you can find out more about how the trust works, how we raise our money and perhaps most importantly how we spend our funds to help support youth in the Winchester and Test Valley area.

We are extremely thankful to all our supporters who have raised thousands of pounds over the last few years doing everything from walking Hadrian’s wall, climbing Ben Nevis, Bed races, running marathons, bake offs, sponsored walks and cycles, you name it they’ve done it, Thank you without you we could not continue to support so many young people.

 

About

George’s Trust was formed with youth very much in mind.  George was a special young man and his two main loves were music and sport.  He was quietly confident , good at most things, but modest as well.   The Trust supports  research and treatment of cancer in teenagers and young adults, local youth organisations the Romsey and Winchester area and the Romsey Abbey Choir in providing choral scholarships.

Our Aims

1.  .  To relieve sickness and preserve the health of teenagers and young adults suffering from cancer, in particular but not exclusively by:

B) supporting research into diagnosis, control and treatment of cancer in teenagers and young adults.
C) supporting the development and provision of resource centres for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in teenagers and young adults.

2.  To provide and assist in the provision of equipment, facilities and services to youth organisations within the Winchester & Romsey area.

3-  To provide or assist in the provision of choral scholarships, equipment and coaching for members of the Romsey Abbey Choir up to the age of eighteen in order to develop their voices to maturity.
