TrustFrom helping provide shelter, food and clothing for Hull’s homeless to treating those who provide care for others to a special Christmas meal – the Neil Hudgell Trust has again donated thousands to worthwhile causes across East Yorkshire.

The Trust, established by Hudgell Solicitors in 2012 to provide funding to projects having a positive impact within their local community, has since helped close to 300 groups across East Yorkshire, donating more than £220,000 in total.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for each project or individual, with a focus placed on supporting grass roots sport, raising educational aspirations and assisting community projects for young and old.

Amongst those to receive support in the latest round of funding was Hull Homeless and Rootless Project (HARP).

A £2,050 donation is to be used to cover the cost of volunteer training, expenses and uniforms, enabling the project to support more homeless people across the region through the cold winter months.

Carers from the Tuesday Afternoon Social Carers Group are also to be treated to Christmas meal, thanks to a £830 donation, whilst Cottingham Cricket Club has been awarded £2,000 to fund new shirts for teams.

East Hull Community Advice has been granted £1,500 to help support people struggling with debt in Hull.

The group provides free debt and budgeting advice, with the Trust money enabling it to recruit two new volunteers and put them through specialist training, meaning more people will be able to be supported.

Around 180 vulnerable women will also be offered new support thanks to a £5,000 donation to the Hull Lighthouse Project by the Trust.

Run by Hull Community Church, the money will be used to launch a 12 month project providing a safe daytime space where they can meet others without fear or judgement, and receive support with literacy, housing, financial management and life skills.

They will also be provided with access to support issues around drug and alcohol misuse.

Travelextra Ltd, a city centre based charity which provides mobility scooters and wheelchair hire for disabled visitors to the city centre, has been awarded £3,948 to purchase additional scooters and cycles.

In the East Riding, the Friends of Hornsea Nursery School have been awarded £3,000, which will be used to buy sensory equipment for the school community room, to be used by children with special educational needs or disabilities.

Jo Hudgell, chair of the Trust, said: “Many of the projects that we have supported in this round are providing vital services to vulnerable people in our community.

“We hope that our contribution to them will assist in spreading their resources a little further to make a difference where it is needed.”
