Our Trustees

The Trustees meet four times a year to consider requests for grants from charities and organisations in the areas of North Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire. Many of the Trustees either knew Jack Lane personally or had a close connection with him. They take pride in approving applications they believe Jack would have given his full support to.
