Old Warwickian Trust
This charity, which was set up in 2011 and into which the assets of the OWA were transferred, is currently providing full bursaries for two boys at Warwick School and has committed to fund two further such bursaries starting in September 2017. The charity holds a portfolio of shares valued at nearly £700,000 and the freehold of the Hampton Road Sports Ground. The ground was formerly let to Warwickian RFC but, following the demise of the rugby club, is now let at a substantially increased rent to a company providing children’s activities and entertainment.
