The Founder of Harrow School established the John Lyon’s Charity 441 years ago to spread gravel to maintain the Edgware and the Harrow Roads. As a grant-giving trust, it celebrates its 21st year of grant-giving in 2013. To date it has distributed over £72million to charitable causes. Barnet Community Transport has just become a recipient of a grant for its Rolling Base® mobile youth facility vehicles.
The grant of £30,000 per annum for each of the next 3 years underpins our ability to deliver fun, play and sporting activities in areas where fixed static facilities are not available. It also enables us to increase our reach and time on site by encouraging or unlocking matched funding from other agencies involved in providing activities for Young People as we seek to maximise the effectiveness of each £ of our grant.
