On the 16th July 2022, We'll be 'tearing down the tarmac' as we run numerous lengths of Heathrow's runway at midnight. This is all for a great cause, The Heathrow Community Trust.
Heathrow Community Trust (HCT) is an independent grant making trust providing much needed funding to communities around Heathrow airport since 1996. In the last 3 years, HCT has awarded over £1.5m in grants to community groups. HCT is a small charity driven to use their grant making to support impactful community groups, committed to their vision of happy, healthy local communities where everyone has the opportunity to live a rewarding and fulfilled life, and the value of giving something back to your community is recognised. HCT’s funding comes from donations from Heathrow Airport Limited and other Team Heathrow companies, noise fines, and fundraising activities like the Midnight Marathon.
One example of a project HCT has funded via the Projects for Young People grant stream is The east to west Trust who were awarded a grant for their Emerge project which supports young people admitted to A&E departments due to self-harm injury or attempted suicide. The grant supported provision at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey, where the Trust were able to have volunteers working three nights a week supporting 154 young people aged 10-25 who were in a mental health crisis across 2 years. The Trust also expanded their community provision to be able to support young people once they left hospital.
