The Moreton Fund is a registered charity number 306227 which provides funds for young people from the Parishes of Moreton and Affpuddle and Turnerspuddle to meet the costs of their education, training and career start-up.

“We know that young people are really concerned about funding the next stage in their lives” says Richard Frampton-Hobbs, Chair of the trust fund “so if we can help we will.”

Richard notes that young people starting work, training or an apprenticeship, or continuing in education, are discouraged by huge expenses in the next year or so.

The Moreton Fund, working name of the William Frampton Educational Trust, gives awards of up to £1000 to young people to help with the cost of training, travel, purchase of equipment to help them move to the next stage in their lives. The applicants must be resident in the parishes of Moreton or Affpuddle and Turnerspuddle – which also covers Waddock Cross, Briantspuddle and Throop and Brockhill. Richard says “We made a number of grants last year and expect to do the same this year.“

Grants are usually awarded in early September (but can be considered on a one-off basis throughout the year) and to apply check out the facebook page for the William Frampton Educational Foundation or email themoretonfund@hotmail.com
