The Connaught Trust - Grant Decisions – September 2018
Meeting on September 13th, the Board saw applications from cadets, reservists and a school combined cadet force.
Full or partial funding was allocated against several ski challenges for army cadets as well as equipment, training kit and a sailing dinghy for three companies of sea cadets respectively.
We were particularly pleased to support The Royal Hampshire Regimental Trust with regard to their Rose Garden. This is not only a place of quiet contemplation, it also hosts reunions of Comrade Association branches and is used for the scattering of the ashes of previous members of the Royal Hampshire Regiment.
The following Hampshire/IOW organisations were granted funds:
- Ryde Sea Cadets
- Southampton University Officers Training Corps
- Warsaw Sea Cadets
- Basingstoke and Deane Sea Cadets
- The Royal Hampshire Regimental Trust
The following organisations in neighbouring counties also received grants.
- The Cadet Training Centre in Frimley Park
- Company 6 Rifles
- 7 Rifles
- Reeds School
Please follow our News page for future reports from these units
