This has been a record-breaking year for the Trust. We had a tremendous response from applicants and have almost doubled the amount of money we have given due to the high quality of applications.
In total this year we have offered seven grants to young people with Ataxia. Two grant recipients have used their awards to purchase digital cameras, one for degree-level study and one to build her photography business. One awardee has funded a personal training programme which is an important part of enabling her to continue working as a teacher. Another awardee, featured below, has purchased specialist riding equipment to enable him to pursue his passion for horse-riding.
