Exciting new music project launched
OKEHAMPTON Educational Foundation has announced the launch of a new major music project within Okehampton and Okehampton Hamlets.
The OEF, run by Okehampton United Charity, is making £30,000 available – £10,000 a year for the next three years – to promote the learning of musical instruments by children and young people up to the age of 25. Individuals and groups are invited to bid for all or part of the money, which must be used to support new initiatives which are not in competition with existing learning, and are solely for the benefit of people living within Okehampton and Okehampton Hamlets.
Welcome to Okehampton United Charity and Okehampton Educational Foundation
Okehampton United Charity was created in 1873 to manage a number of land holdings in the Okehampton area. Its income was used to provide general charitable benefits in the Okehampton and its four Hamlets. In 1910 a separate charity, Okehampton Educational Foundation was created to provide educational benefits in the same area. Sales of land for development in 2001 and 2005 have created an investment fund which provides a substantial income. For more detailed history please visit Okehampton United Charity - A Past History.
