Julia Baron, Chair of the Basil Houghton Memorial Trust, says: "We are very keen to hear from anyone for whom a small grant could make a big difference. The application is very straight forward and we know that previous grant recipients have really enjoyed a short break or the opportunity to buy a piece of equipment which brings them pleasure for months and years to come"
