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.
