About the Trust

Established by Richard and Mary Earle, the Creativity and Development Trust, a Registered Charity under Public Trust and administered locally, helps fund specific local projects within the arts and technical sciences.


The aim of the Trust is to provide resources that will nurture creative ideas and talent in our community and bring specific projects to fruition.

Richard and Mary Earle believe:

“The Arts and the Sciences need to be continually replenished through creativity that is initiated and developed by active individuals and groups. But the reality is that creative people often struggle financially while they are developing new ideas and concepts, and that’s where the Trust can help.”

The Trust provides funding in two areas each year, with funding being available in alternate years.
