e-Learning Foundation wins £50k Lloyd's Special Award 2008

Lloyd’s Charities Trust, the grantmaking charity for the Lloyd’s market, has donated £50,000 to the e-Learning Foundation to provide children from low income families with computers at home and access to their schools’ online networks for their studies.

The e-Learning Foundation is this year’s recipient of Lloyd’s Special Award 2008, a donation which goes to a charity working to address issues of interest to the Lloyd’s market.

The Special Award donation will be directed towards supporting e-learning projects in schools in East London where Lloyd’s has long-standing links through Lloyd’s Community Programme.

The project will be rolled out to local schools in 2009, which will coincide with the 20th anniversary of Lloyd’s support for East London through Lloyd’s Community Programme.

Established over fifty years ago, Lloyd’s Charities Trust has a long tradition of providing charitable support to a wide range of national and international charities on behalf of the Lloyd’s market. The Trust also works with and supports three partner charities, which change every three years. The current partner charities are Coram, FARM-Africa and the Samaritans.
