Tor Lodge and Applecross Trust

Tor Lodge and Applecross Trust is a registered charity set up to support the development of peoples knowledge and skills and who work in the cast metals and related industries.
Tor Lodge Trust was formed in 1988 from the proceeds of sale of the Tor Lodge building, an accomodation block for students at the National Foundry College. Its prime objective was to provide grants to cover the costs of accomodation for students wanting to study Foundry Technology. Following many changes to the way in which training and education is now provided to people wanting to study cast metals and related subjects the trust is now able to support all kinds of learning programmes and includes course costs, travel expenses including accomodation, conference and exhibition fees and any additional related costs involved with the development of the applicants skills and knowledge.
The Trust has over a number of years supported young people allowing them to attend College and or University, attend major conferences and exhibitions both in the UK and overseas and to visit as part of study tours other companies and businesses.
The Trust has recently taken over the administration of some additional funds from the Voya Kondic Trust and will be maintaining a bursary in the name of this great foundry educationalist.
