The husband and wife team behind fast-growing tech startup UKFast have donated £5m into a newly created charitable trust to give a helping hand to disadvantaged young people.
Gail and Lawrence Jones MBE are placing the funds directly into the UKFast Community and Education Trust, which seeks to improve the education, training and development opportunities available to young people, particularly within Greater Manchester.
The trust is committed to providing sustainable and lasting support for young people experiencing poverty, abuse, discrimination, exclusion and neglect, building on UKFast’s existing work in the community and in schools. The trust also supports individuals and organisations looking after young people with life-limiting and life-threatening condition in Manchester.
The £5m fund is accessible to projects and charities that can prove their track record of delivering sustainable and impactful programmes that directly benefit young people, positively increasing the quality of their lives through education and personal development.
