Sir John Henry Morris Jones Trust Fund
The Trust was set up in 1975 with a bequest under the terms of the will of Sir John Henry Morris Jones, who was a G.P. in the Town for many years and M.P. from 1929 – 1950. Applications are invited annually by the Trustees from young people under the age of 19, who live in the former Borough of Colwyn area.
Chairman of the Trustees, Mr Jim Barry, said: “On behalf of the Trustees, I would like to offer our congratulations to this year’s award recipients, who the Trustees concluded were all highly motivated young people showing outstanding ability and dedication in their chosen fields. I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage anyone who knows of any young people (under 19 years of age) from the Bay of Colwyn area who are able to demonstrate a high level of achievement in the arts, sport or education, to please get in touch with the Town Clerk in Colwyn Bay (tel: 01492 532248) to find out more about how the Trust Fund could help to support them.”
We are still trying to find out if there are anything similar for athletes that currently live in Denbighshire and Gwynedd Counties,
