The Victoria Foundation is truly grateful to have received an additional six figure donation from The C A W Blackwell Discretionary Will Trust. This very considerable donation will enable the Foundation to increase both the grant amount it awards to medical students facing great financial hardship during their studies and the number of students it supports annually. Grants from ‘The Charles Anthony Walter Blackwell Training Fund’ will be awarded by the Foundation to medical students in real need to help provide study materials, equipment, and travel to hospital or elective placements.
Graham Ball, TVF Founder and CEO, said
“This tremendous donation will have such a huge impact not only on the increased level of support we will award to medical students but will also enable us to expand the reach of our grant giving programme which supports widening participation in medicine. ‘The Charles Anthony Walter Blackwell Training Fund’ will provide vital funding for medical students – the future generations of doctors. We are so truly grateful to the trustees of The C A W Blackwell Discretionary Will Trust in making this award to the Foundation.”
