Matthew Hill, who passed away in February 2022, was a
passionate advocate of the sustainability agenda, a believer in
the power of the community to help tackle the climate
emergency, and an expert ready to use his skills and
knowledge to effect change and make things happen. He was
also a lovely man, kind and thoughtful, whose gentle
demeanour hid a steely determination.
Headingley Development Trust (HDT), of which Matthew was
Co-Chair from 2020 until his illness meant he had to step
down, wants to celebrate his life in an enduring and
meaningful way and have asked Matthew's family if we could
set up a Fund in his name: the Matthew Hill Sustainability
Fund. This will be a Fund to which people can give as much or
as little as they feel able, supporting local projects that make
the practical difference Matthew would want to see.
The purpose of the Fund is two-fold:
Although the Fund will be open-ended for donations, the
intention is to "get on and do" - Matthew's approach to things.
The plan, provisionally, is for the Fund to run from the summer
of 2022, until its closedown in 2027. If there are resources left
by this time, the Fund might be extended.
How to Donate
Donations can be made at any time to HDT, preferably by BACs transfer and including the reference "Matthew Hill" - see the details below. If you would like to find out more, or you would like to discuss other ways of donating to the fund then please contact email@example.com
