Ursula Keyes Trust

 

The Ursula Keyes Trust was established in 1985 as the legacy of a prominent Chester resident. The purpose of the Trust is to support the financial needs of various organisations and individuals in the Chester area, particularly in the fields of health and social care.

A wide range of causes are supported, including cultural and leisure projects, particularly when matched by other fundraising efforts. Funds are mainly directed at the cost of the capital projects and equipment rather than as a source of funding for on-going running costs or salaries. National charities are also considered for support if there its a clear link to local beneficiary.
