Today marks a sad day for our family as it would have been George's 24th birthday.... and so we thought, on a positive note, that we should share with you some of the latest allocations from The George Heath Foundation!
In July 2019, we were very pleased to work with the Parish Council and donate a defibrillator for use on the King George V Playing Field
In October, we worked with Chance Changing Lives to provide winter provisions (sleeping bags, tents, and thermal mugs) for homeless people.
We have "sponsored" a kit for Tarvin Primary School...
...and, as a result of seeing an article about the church clock on Tarvin Online, we have made a contribution towards the automation of the clock
So, in summary of The George Heath Foundation by numbers:
The total net funds generated as a result of fund-raising activities: £37,790
Grants paid to date: £25,460
Number of allocations made to date: 39
Allocations currently in progress: 6
Total value of funds earmarked for these 6 projects £5,850
Our next fundraising event is on Friday 13th March at Tarvin Community Centre and is a table quiz for teams of up to 6 people. Entry is £2.50 per team member. To reserve a table please contact us via:

And this year, The George Heath Memorial Trophy football tournament will take place on The King George V Playing Fields (The Rec) on Saturday 16th May — more details on how to enter a team will be available nearer to the day!
As always, more information is available about The George Heath Foundation via our website and Facebook page:
...and finally, we just wanted to say thank you to every one who has supported us since George died in March 2016. Your support has meant more than you will ever know...thank you.
