​The Committee's policy is to support publications or projects within the Charity's objects which are unlikely to proceed without the Charity's assistance. Where a publication or project is likely to recover its costs or show a profit, the Charity will normally make an interest-free loan.

How To Apply

If financial assistance is provided, it is a standard requirement for this to be properly acknowledged in the publication, and for a copy of the publication to be donated to the Trust. The Trust’s annual income is in the region of £3,000 and as a general rule grants are unlikely to exceed £500. Where a project is expected to make a profit, The Trust may make an interest free loan of up to £1,000 repayable once the costs of the project have been recovered. Applications should be made to:
The Honorary Secretary,
21 School Lane,
YO23 3SQ

Applications by email are an advantage since this makes it easier to circulate the information to members of the Committee. Emails should be addressed to martinpickard@pick73.plus.com.
