A CHARITABLE trust which supports Cumbrian communities has a new administrator.

Caroline Addison, who has been involved in the trust for more than a decade, has taken the helm of the Hadfield Trust from Michael Hope, who is stepping down after 17 years and now becomes a trustee.

The deadline for the next round of Hadfield Trust grant applications is the June 1. Charitable organisations which believe they may be eligible can visit www.hadfieldtrust.org.uk for details.
