Ed Kent Trust

Charity description

Ed Kent Trust logo
The Ed Kent Trust supports young people, under 18 years old, to improve their skills in sport or music, particularly in cricket or drumming. Ed loved both of these and through the trust we aim to help those who have the ability, but need the financial support to step up to the next level, be it in sport, from club to district, district to county or indeed beyond, or in music from one grade to the next. We will award grants that could help towards the cost of extra kit, equipment, coaching fees, examination fees or transport costs if any of these are increased as a result of improved performance and subsequent selection for the next step up in a young person's 'career'. We will also support cases where family income has decreased for some reason and current activity is threatened by this. 

Ed was born in February 2002, in Dorset, the younger of our two children, having an older   sister, Becky. Although sudden and devastating, his death from a severe asthma attack was  peaceful. He slipped away in the ambulance on the way to hospital aged 13, in November 2015.
Ed had a huge enthusiasm for life. He was friendly, always smiling and showed compassion for others beyond his years. During his short life, he clearly made a huge impact on many people.  It is partly because of his amazingly positive outlook on life, that has led us to want to build this legacy in his memory.
