Hillingdon Community Trust is your local grant-making trust funding voluntary and community projects and activities in the Hillingdon wards of Botwell, Pinkwell, Townfield, Yiewsley, West Drayton and Heathrow Villages.
The Trust was established in 2003 and is a registered charity. Our main funding comes from Heathrow Airport Ltd which agreed, when permission was given for the building of Terminal 5, to provide £1m a year for 15 years to benefit the local community. The Trust was created to ensure that this sum was used effectively and to gain maximum impact for the community. At the end of our 12th year of operation, the Trust has approved grants of over £10m and so has made a major contribution to supporting the community.
HCT Is pleased to support The Mayors Fund for London Count on Us. It has great to see the level of school ownership of the project on school visits and the excitement and enjoyment of the children taking part. Also that parents were there and proud to support their children and even try some of the maths challenges.
