Founded in August 1962 by Joseph Patrick and his wife Ruth, in memory of their son, Andrew. The Trust provides grants to other charitable organisations, institutions or trusts, with particular support for Muscular Dystrophy.
Over the years as the Trusts financial position has strengthened it has been able to diversify its grants to a wider range of charities.
In 2012 the Trust celebrated its 50th anniversary. During this time grants in excess of £5m have been allocated to registered charities.
