Here is some
History of the Trust, and its predecessors, the Castledine Trust and the Susan Barnes Trust.
Role of the Trust
The Trust makes grants for the following purposes:-
- provision of books and
equipment for use by youth go organisations,
- expenses for organising
youth go events,
- help with expenses for individual young players to
attend suitable events.
It should be
emphasised that in giving a grant the commitment of any young player(s)
to Go weighs far more than their playing strength. When attending an adult
event, they are expected to conduct themselves in an adult manner.
Applications for support should be made to Francis Roads (or one of the other Trustees).
An Application Form is available here. The Application
Based on this information the Trust may make a
grant which is typically between 50% and 90% of the total requirement. (100% grants are very rarely given).
All information is treated in confidence, and is only divulged to the three trustees.
- total cost (estimated if necessary) of the activity
for which support is being requested
- how much of this
can be met from local sources;
- any special reasons
why support is needed, such as unemployment, long term sickness, single
parenthood, refugee status, etc.
Donations should be sent to Francis Roads at 61 Malmesbury Road, London E18 2NL, or handed to one of the Trustees. Cheques should be made payable to the "Castledine-Barnes Trust". The Trust's normal policy is to keep individual donations confidential, biut to publicise corporate donations. (Thus a donation from "Joe Bloggs" is confidential, one from the "Much Binding Go Congress" is not.) A list of corporate donations is given here. If you do not wish to follow the above guidlelines (ie you wish to keep a corporate donation confidential, or make an individual donation public) please let us know.
Here is a copy of the most recent
accounts of the Trust.
The Trust is completely independant of the British Go Association (BGA). However, it works closely with the BGA; here is the
