If you would like to get involved as a trustee and help improve our village resources and quality of life, we'll be very pleased to hear from you.

Making grants

"For the last two years we have been working very hard to improve our outdoor learning environment and with this substantial donation we will now be able to complete our garden area" (Duxford Playgroup) 

The Advent Trust has an annual small grants cycle beginning in December each year to help with projects or special items that will assist Duxford community organisations.  Since 2012 we are delighted to have been able to help the establishment of Duxford Village Drama, assist the Playgroup, Duxplay and the Scout Group with small grants and to have assisted the Churches Conservation Trust to install improved circuitry and portable electrical cabling in St John's Church so that it can more easily be used for community events.  We have also purchased two commercial-grade gazebos that are available for Duxford community organisations to use free of charge.

If you think we could help your organisation, please click for the application form and guidance notes


In other contexts the Trustees also have expertise in making grant applications. Between us we have successfully made large bids to organisations such as the National Lottery and the Leonardo da Vinci foundation.  We are happy to lend our collective expertise to help Duxford organisations with fundraising in this way.
