The Freshtime Futures Trust trustees come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have plenty of experience to offer.
These include an air commodore, business directors, Lincolnshire Chief Constable Neil Rhodes as well as Freshtime UK chairman Mark Swanwick, head of procurement John Stokes and managing director Mark Newton.
The trust is being launched on various social media platforms, so young people under 25 can easily access the simple form that has to be filled in explaining why funding is needed and why they should be chosen for help. It’s also available at freshtimefuturestrust.org
The form may be filled in by young people themselves, or it can be filled in by a parent, guardian, carer, teacher or anybody who feels an individual would benefit from help from the trust.
The trust will consider requests for help from any young person with an ambition to achieve, whether that is in the food sector or in a completely different industry, or with funding so that an individual can continue education or even fill in gaps because of illness or caring responsibilities.
