The Alvechurch Grammar School Trust has supported hundreds of individuals over the years, in projects varying from as little as £10 to over £1,300.
Below are a few examples of the types of activities the Trust can help with.
The Trust provided funding for an individual’s expedition in the Indian Himalayas in 2015 as part of a British Exploring Society trip, carrying out glacial ablation surveys. The recipient described the trip as “an adventure with a real purpose”, developing leadership qualities, gaining additional data collection skills and providing a different perspective by having the opportunity to visit such a unique part of the world.
