The John Sykes Foundation has been established to help transform lives in Reading.
The organisation has been founded to help individuals who live within a 5 mile radius of the centre of Reading. It has two main aims, to relieve distress and inspire opportunity.
The organisation will fund individuals and projects that offer direct benefit through 4 grant giving programmes.
Volunteers are a vital part of the foundation as they will support the projects identified, offer administrative and office assistance and form part of a fundraising committee to raise funds for distribution in the form of grants.
