Funding Update: Garfield Weston Foundation add their support.

We are delighted to announce that we have received £25,000 from Garfield Weston Foundation towards our exciting new project to extend Halsway and provide much more space for people in which to enjoy our fantastic programme.

We have now raised over £160,000 but still need your support. So please donate if you can to keep Halsway Manor, National Centre for Folk Arts, as the premier folk education organisation in the UK.

You can find our more about ‘Future Halsway – Stage 2’, including how to make a donation here.

Established in 1958, the Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded charitable grant-making trust which now gives away approximately £80 million a year to charities across the UK. Having established one of the most respected charitable institutions in the UK, the Weston Family Trustees today remain highly active and hands-on. The Foundation’s funding comes from an endowment of shares in the family business – a successful model that still endures today and as the businesses have grown so too have the charitable donations.

Each year the Foundation gives away its income and donations have continued to grow. Since it was established it has donated over £1 billion, of which over half has been given away in the past ten years alone. In the most recent financial year the Foundation gave away over £79 million to over 2,100 charities across the UK.
