Jon Hayward Memorial Trust










The Trust

Since 2008 The Jon Hayward Memorial Trust (registered charity no. 1121391) has provided over 100 bursaries towards music lesson costs for children aged 7-11 at primary schools throughout the Shropshire Council area.

The Trust was set up in memory of a well-known Shropshire folk musician who sadly died in November 2006. Jon was passionate about music and always enjoyed sharing this with others. He particularly loved to see children developing their musical ability.

Since 2007 family and friends have raised funds through concerts, ceilidhs, luncheons, sponsored walks and raffles, enabling us to assist over 70 children in 32 Shropshire primary schools so far. We are very grateful to all our supporters, including all the musicians who have played at our events, often for free!

We provide assistance to a number of families who are either struggling or are unable to meet the total costs involved in music tuition, and are not eligible for financial assistance towards this from any other source.

Thanks to generous donations, guitars, violins and keyboards are available for free loan to qualifying students (subject to availability and to them being returned in good working order)
