Graham Burrough Charitable Trust

About the Trust

The Graham Burrough Trust was founded in 1998 by Graham’s widow, to remember him and in gratitude for the care he received. Resources that helped him were invested to make modest grants to support, usually local, mental health projects that would help to lighten the burden for both sufferers and carers.
