A charitable trust, which has given nearly £50,000 to 60 organisations in Yorkshire in its first year in operation, is inviting more groups to find out how they can also receive funding.RainbowGardens12

The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust is celebrating its first birthday with a presentation at The Endsleigh Centre in Hull at 2pm on June 26th 2013 and representatives from any community or local sporting group in the county are invited to attend.

Neil Hudgell, his wife Jo Hudgell and members of The Hull and East Yorkshire Community Foundation, which administers the trust, will all be taking part in the event, along with delegates from organisations which have so far benefitted from funding.

These include:

  • The Humberside Youth Darts Organisation which works with around 45 children and young people and has so far received £1500 from the trust with two applications over the year to pay for equipment.
  • Densholme Community Farm, Great Hatfield near Hull, which has been given £1000 to enable the group to build a sensory garden to provide a multi-sensory experience for all service users and visitors.
  • Chellow Hearts in Bradford, which received £990 to fund glide bikes specifically designed for children with a range of different disabilities.
  • Rainbow Garden, a community initiative based in North Hull, which has received £750 from the Trust to fund a project to provide seeds and support to encourage local families to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Jo Hudgell, who heads the Trust said: “The trust was established to encourage grassroots activities which support local communities and promote sport, health, wellbeing and educational aspiration in Yorkshire.  We are very pleased in our first year to have supported so many organisations and are keen to encourage more applications from across the county.”

The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust began in April 2012 and was set up to mark the 15th anniversary of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in compensation claims for personal injury, medical negligence and professional negligence.  The firm, which employs 100 staff, serves clients in England and Wales from offices in Hull and Leeds.

Every three months, the Trust awards up to £15,000 – made up of 15 grants, each worth up to £1,000.  In total, the Trust can give out funding of up to £60,000 a year.
