Every year The Marketors’ Trust gives the incoming Master an allowance to donate to the charity or charities of his or her choice.
This year, Master Andrew Cross has chosen to support two charities: The Westminster Society and the Cycle-Smart Foundation.
The Westminster Society (https://www.wspld.org.uk/) is an award winning charity providing services for people with a range of learning disabilities and their families. They operate in Westminster and other London Boroughs.
Their vision is to enable learning disabled Londoners to stay healthy, be safe, and to have the chance to make full use of everything their community has to offer just like everybody else.
The Cycle-smart Foundation (https://www.cycle-smartfoundation.org/) another award winning charity, is committed to saving young people’s lives by promoting safer cycling and the use of cycle helmets. It has developed an extensive education programme targeting children from their early years through to mid-teens.
By providing the child with age-appropriate material, the charity aims to empower children and young people with the knowledge and skills to help them make an informed choice on the potential benefits of safety helmets and to overcome peer pressure that they may face.
