A HISTORIC charity is once again offering grant aid to students.

The Harehills Foundation Trust, established in 1744, provides young people with financial help for their education.

The charity was started when Sarah Heaton left £200 to provide free education in English and Latin for children from the Oakworth, Newsholme and Slippery Ford area.

Qualifications have been relaxed since then to cover anything to do with education.

But it still only applies to people living in the area covered by the former Oakworth Urban District Council.

Written applications – including address details – should be sent to the clerk to the Harehills Foundation Trust, c/o Oakworth Primary School, Station Road, Oakworth, Keighley BD22 7HX.

The closing date for applications to be received is April 25.
