Andrew Mitchell MP thanks Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust for the nearly £1million donated for good causes last year

Andrew Mitchell has thanked the Trustees of the Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust on behalf of the Royal Town for all the hard work that the Trust does throughout the year.

The charity is an independent grant making charity that traces its roots back to Tudor times in the 1500s. Throughout its long history, it has improved the lives of many generations of Royal Suttonians and provides considerable support for good causes across the Royal Town ranging from supporting the conservation of the environment and Sutton’s cultural heritage to helping individuals in need, whether it be by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage.

Chief Executive, Ernie Murray, updated Sutton’s MP on the projects that the Trustees are focusing on this year and what the Trust achieved in the past year. Most recently, the Trust awarded grants for a full-time Money and Debt Centre on Falcon Lodge as well as funding three years of apprenticeship schemes at the Jericho Foundation, giving young people the opportunity to acquire a strong skillset while earning at the same time.

Speaking at the annual meeting to thank the trustees and all those who are involved in the work of the charity, Mr Mitchell said how impressed he had been with the work carried out by the Trust and extended Sutton Coldfield’s gratitude, wishing them well with tackling the challenges during the coming year.
