Every year talented youngsters who reside in Bridlington are invited to apply for a grant from the Parker Home Trust.
The Trust was set up several years ago and originated from a bequest by a Mr Parker whose purpose was to benefit the children of Burlington (later it was changed to the whole of Bridlington). The money was used to establish the Parker Children’s Home on Marton Road, Bridlington. The home was later sold and the proceeds used to create the Parker Home Trust. The interest from the money received from the sale is now used to benefit boys and girls under the age of 18 and who reside in Bridlington.
Money is available for children who have a special talent in any area, for example, athletics, gymnastics, music, swimming etc.
Youngsters who believe they might be eligible to benefit from the Trust should complete an application form, available by telephoning the Clerk to the Trustees on 01482 393201 which should be returned no later than 1 March 2018.
