The Sam Thorpe Trust Fund aims to provide small discretionary grants to young people from Penrith and the surrounding area (within a 10 mile radius), who are under the age of 18. The Trust looks to support projects that achieve one or more of the following:

  • Enable young people to take part in educational opportunities as part of a school or youth group.
  • Enable young people to participate in extra-curricular opportunities that support and inspire their ongoing engagement and development.
  • Support additional costs related to ongoing educational, sporting and creative activity.

Previous projects that the Sam Thorpe Trust Fund has supported include:

  • National Youth Theatre Summer Schools
  • Volunteer work in Ugandan Schools
  • Volunteer work in Madagascar
  • School Field Trips in UK and overseas
  • Sports Trips
  • Purchase of T-shirts for a Youth Choir
  • Operation Raleigh
