The Darkley Trust has recently been established entirely due to the generosity of Robert Maskrey OBE, who sadly died before the trust was enabled.
The Trust will be working principally in the areas of the arts and homeless charities, and predominantly to the benefit of Wales and her Borders. It was Robert’s wish that the Trust would give a helping hand to artists in all artistic fields, including the visual arts, music, literature, theatre and dance; and to smaller charities supporting the homeless.
Applicants may be individuals or registered charities and the amounts to be awarded would vary from between £500 and £5000. The Trust will meet three times a year in February, June and October. Applicants may apply at any time but most applications will only be considered at Trust meetings.
