Garfield Weston Grant

We are honoured that Garfield Weston Foundation, a family-founded charitable grant-making trust which supports a wide range of charitable activities across the UK has selected Oarsome Chance as recipient of a grant. The funds will help us to continue and grow our educational programmes for young people in the Portsmouth and Gosport area.

Established in 1958 by Willard Garfield Weston, the Foundation has donated over £960million, becoming one of the largest and most respected charitable institutions in the UK. In the last financial year the Foundation has donated over £62million. The Trustees are descendants of the founder and the Weston Family takes a highly active and hands-on approach. Over 1900 charities across the UK benefit each year from the Foundation’s grants.
