Covid financial grants available from the MHT

The Michael Hardinge Trust exists to provide support to the educational needs of the young people of the village.  As we have now been living with the restrictions of Covid-19 for almost a year, the Trustees are concerned that the educational needs of some of our young people may have been affected by the pandemic.  Although we do not know how people may have been affected, the Trustees have now agreed to set aside some funds which can be provided as grants where lockdown measures may have had an adverse effect on educational progress.

If as a parent or young person you feel that education has suffered as a result of the pandemic, we are inviting you to apply for a special grant which may be of some help.  Funds are potentially available to anyone from the village who has not yet reached the age of 25 and who is in education or training.  This is in line with our policy on grants.  Funds may be limited, so apply as soon as you can.

You can apply in the usual way by letter to the Chairman of Trustees or via email to mhtinhorley@gmail.com.  Alternatively, if you would like to talk to someone confidentially to see how we may be able to help, please contact any one of the MHT Trustees. All applications will be treated in confidence.
