The Oglesby Charitable Trust seeks to bring about realistic, ambitious, environmental improvements that accommodate the needs of modern living within a fragile and precious natural environment.
We have supported both regional and international projects, although we now focus entirely on UK-based, regional activity. All projects have a link to the Trustees and involve places and issues of special interest to them.
We favour projects that involve the local community, understanding that whilst real environmental change level is achieved over generations, the best time to start is today.
