High Legh Educational Trust

Villagers may be interested to know a little about the High Legh Educational Trust. It was formed by combining the School & School House Charity Trust, which dated from 1851, and the Joseph Hazlehurst Charity founded as long ago as 1799. In 1981 £15,000 was acquired from the sale of the old school buildings, now the Village Hall and School House, and this sum was reinvested by the Educational Trust. The income generated is disbursed by the Trustees to local projects which meet the Trust’s broad educational objectives. Over the past two decades, grants totalling £23,128 have been made to 42 worthwhile causes within High Legh an average of £1,005 a year, or £482 per project.

Money is granted for educational purposes to benefit local children and young people. High Legh Primary School and our Pre-School Nursery have often requested and received donations for specific projects over the years, but allocations are made to individuals and groups too. The Trustees are frequently heartened to receive recipients’ letters of thanks making it clear that even modest sums can make a real difference. So High Legh Educational Trust hopes to continue to be able to respond to well-argued applications for funds which will help and encourage young people from the village in the years to come.

It is appropriate here to place on record the communitys gratitude to Charles, the late Lord Grey for his characteristic generosity in creating this Educational Trust. He chaired the committee with his legendary good humour, wisdom and infectious enthusiasm and is still greatly missed.
