THE club is to receive £10,000 for youth projectsÂ from a trust set up at the wishes of a former mayor of Henley.
Tony Lane, who was mayor of Henley four times while serving as a Conservative councillor from 1965 to 2002, died in 2014.
In his will, he instructed that the Anthony (Tony) Lane Foundation, a charitable trust, should be set up to donate money toÂ community groups and voluntary organisations in the town to fund youth projects.
The grant to this club will help fund the annual sponsorship of a young person who lives or works in or near Henley to take part in Rotary’s Youth Leadership Award scheme.
Candidates will be able to apply for a place on the course, which isÂ held at the Rhos-y-Gwaliau activity centre, near Lake Bala in north Wales.
The foundation funds projects that are themed on engaging young people, providing social wellbeing for the elderly, celebrating Henley’s heritage, improving the health of the people in the town and encouragingÂ new business.
ApplicationsÂ to the foundationÂ should be made in writing to: The trustees of the Anthony (Tony) Lane Foundation, The Burnside Partnership, The Carpenters Workshop, Blenheim Palace Sawmills, Combe, Oxfordshire, OX29 8ET.Â
