The Alan Boswell Group Charitable Trust has awarded a milestone £1m in grants to charities and community organisations across the East of England since its launch in 2019.
Since launching, the Trust has supported many causes including mental health charities, healthcare organisations, sports clubs, the elderly community, children’s charities, veterans, and animal welfare organisations.
In the first year, £250,000 was awarded to charities and community groups including local cancer charity Big C, which supports patients living with a cancer diagnosis and their families at its Support and Information Centres throughout East Anglia. The money also helped to fund world-leading cancer research undertaken at Norwich Research Park.
In the second year, £339,000 was awarded to a range of organisations including Raspberry Pi Foundation, Read for Good, MS Society, The Feed, and Samaritans.
And in the third year, £520,000 was donated, taking the total awarded so far since the Trust’s inception to over £1.1m. A mix of regional and national charities and community groups have been helped by the Trust though the award of grants.
Alan Boswell, Executive Chairman of Alan Boswell Group, said: “We are in a fortunate position to help others, so why wouldn’t we? It’s important to make a difference and to give something back, so I’m pleased that we’ve hit such an important milestone and hope that the grants have gone some way to help people.”
