We have endowed £5 million of National Lottery funds in Legacy Trust UK, a charitable trust fund set up to support a diverse range of cultural and sporting initiatives throughout the UK associated with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
We are working with them in an advisory capacity to see our investment realised in high quality initiatives across the UK - of which roughly 70 per cent will be cultural.
Successful projects range from expanding the Big Dance festival in London, to a Great Exhibition in the East Midlands, incorporating arts and media, heritage, science and sport. Projects will start to take shape in the coming year, all aiming to leave a lasting and meaningful legacy.
