This year the trust has assisted 18 people with their dreams including eight Kings of Wessex School students who travelled to South Africa. Others include Thomas Young, an Oxford University student, who was given a grant for his trip to Romania where he taught English for seven weeks, and Joe Barnes, who attended the World Windsurfing Championships in Marseille. Sisters Joanna and Rebecca Teagle will be going to South Africa in March with the trusts assistance to work with children in the towns and orphanages there, while Hannah McGowan will go to Thailand next summer to work with disabled children. The trust has also provided a start-up grant for equipment to enable teacher Michael Edmonds to run a holiday soccer course for youngsters. Keith Herring, trust chairman, said: The aim of the trust is to encourage Cheddars young people aged five to 25 to apply for grants to help their education or training, to assist them to take on more responsibilities or to enable them to work for communities here or abroad.
