We set up The Ed Kent Trust in February 2017 in memory of Edward Kent, our son and brother. The object of the trust is to raise funds in order to provide grant aid to both individuals and to organisations, supporting youth cricket and other sports in Dorset and also to support young percussionists and other musicians in the county. We awarded twenty-one grants between February 2018 and February 2019, totalling more than £8,000 and ranging between £96 and £1,000 per grant.

We raise funds in various ways, normally through events but also through direct donations. Please contact us if you have an idea for fundraising.
