Francis Bernard Caunt was a resident of Newark who sadly passed away leaving no family or next of kin. He decided to leave the bulk of his estate to create an educational Trust Fund which could help the residents of Newark and surrounding areas to progress with either their academic or vocational education.
The Trust Fund is administered by Trustees (who are representative of the Newark and Sherwood community) who will consider any application for a Grant against the following criteria:
