The Basil Houghton Memorial Trust was established with an endowment from Mrs Doris Houghton and named after her son, the late Basil Houghton of Shrewsbury, who himself had a learning disability.  Mrs Houghton was particularly keen that the money should be used to enable people with a learning disability to fulfil their dreams or aspirations and to improve the quality of their lives either individually or collectively.
