We are proud to work with various organisations to provide our Mentees with opportunities including grants and bursaries.
TOM DONALDSON CHARITABLE TRUST
The Tom Donaldson Charitable Trust: ‘Trust me, I will be a Doctor’ was set up in 2018 in memory of Tom Donaldson, a newly qualified doctor from Derbyshire. Having completed his final exams at the University of Manchester, Tom was on his elective in New Zealand in February 2009 when he died following an accident that resulted in a head injury.
Aged just 23, Tom would have helped hundreds of people as a doctor but did not have the chance to make that happen. In Tom’s memory, the Trust supports other young people to achieve their dream of becoming a doctor and help the people Tom dreamed of reaching.
Specifically, the Trust supports young people from backgrounds of social and educational disadvantage in their applications to study Medicine at university, by working with partners to provide small grants to disadvantaged sixth form students applying to Medical Schools, providing information on all stages of the application process, and raising awareness of the work experience opportunities available.
