Grove Trust Grants
This year we were very happy to announce that The Grove Trust has given away over £2,000,000 to local charities since we started 12 years ago. Many thanks to all our members who have made this possible !
For 2021 we decided to focus on Post Pandemic Support for Youth which is so relevant as the inequalities among the borough’s young people are staggering.
We decided to make some donations before the summer to help with programs being run by the Harrow Club, Solidarity Sports and Kensington Aldridge Academy.
