The Hugh Neill Charity

Charity number: 243806


The Hugh Neill Charity was established by James Hugh Neill in 1964, to be applied for such charitable purposes as the Trustees in their absolute discretion shall think fit, by means of grants to charitable bodies or funds.

It is the policy of the Trustees of the Hugh Neill Charity to give preferential consideration to the “ongoing” needs of charitable bodies operating specifically in South Yorkshire.

At the same time the Trustees give sympathetic consideration to requests for “one-off” grants to organisations in South Yorkshire requiring finance to meet start-up costs, capital costs offering long term benefits or costs arising from unforeseen circumstances.

Only registered charities are considered for grants. No grants are given to individuals.
