Leslie Sell Charitable Trust - Peter Sell Award


The Trustees invite applications which widen engagement and involvement in Scouting and Guiding – in particular, the Trustees welcome applications that will encourage people to engage with scouting or guiding who have not previously done so.

They also look for projects that will have a legacy beyond the initial expenditure of the grant e.g. through the purchase of equipment that can be used in later years or by encouraging engagement of people, some of whom may then remain involved in the long term.

The Trust already gives hundreds of grants a year. The Peter Sell Annual Award will cover something different to the normal range of Grants made by The Leslie Sell Charitable Trust.
