Are you under 25 and live in Ruddington, or do you live in Ruddington but your children are away at university? If so, you or they could be eligible to apply for financial assistance from the James Peacock Educational Foundation.
James Peacock left money in his will to be used for the education of Ruddington’s children. Today, the Trustees of the Foundation (a registered charity) have the responsibility of managing that money.
The Foundation accepts applications for financial assistance from anyone under 25 who lives in Ruddington (or if they’re away at university or other further education and their parents still live in Ruddington) and are in need of financial assistance for an educational reason. Previously, the Foundation has contributed towards the cost of books, equipment, computers, placements abroad etc. However, the Trustees can’t assist with living expenses or tuition fees.
If you’d like more information or an application form to be considered for an award, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that, quite often, where large amounts are needed, the Foundation will give a contribution and, for accounting purposes, receipts will be needed.
The Trustees generally meet in February, June and October. We look forward to hearing from you!
