Don Hirst Trust Fund
The Trust was set up to perpetuate the memory of Don Hirst who was tragically killed whilst officiating for Hillingdon A.C. at a British League match in Luton in 1985. The majority of the original contributions were received from clubs competing at the meeting, and these were supplemented by club members and the wider athletic community.
The Trust was established as a memorial to Don with the specific intention to help young people in the pursuit of athletic improvement in their performance. Don had been interested in this and his family supported the proposal. Over time grants have been awarded to a number of fully paid up members of HAC.
If young athletes need assistance with medical help with injuries, if specific equipment is needed, or courses need funding, please write to the Trust, c/o Susan Bishop: firstname.lastname@example.org
