Trustees Yvonne Wilson & Ian Thompson visited the Island of St Kitts & Nevis in March 2017 to meet with the Education Ministry and Cultural Ministry respectively in order to set up an Education Bursary on behalf of the late Felix Dexter who had left a legacy donation of £40,000 to further provide educational and welfare assistance to young people from underprivileged and vulnerable backgrounds at secondary school level.
