SWCF donations

The Simon Wolff Charitable Foundation closed at the end of 2016. In its last few months, the foundation made grants to the following organisations:

Friends of the Earth

FoE is a well-established charity which focuses on a number of environmental issues. It shares SWCF concerns on air pollution and associated health problems. We were therefore delighted to be able to donate £750 to the FOE Clean Air Appeal. You can read more about FoE here: https://www.foe.co.uk/


This small charity is campaigning to achieve safer streets for us all, and to increase walking and cycling, which have considerable health benefits. The Trustees of the SWCF are pleased to be able to support their road danger reduction campaign through a donation of £500. You can find more information about Roadpeace on their website: http://www.roadpeace.org/


HACAN is an organization working to reduce the environmental impact of airports, with particular respect to air and noise pollution. The SWCF was pleased to be able to donate the sum of £400 towards their information campaign. The chair of HACAN, John Stewart, is an experienced transport campaigner who worked with Simon Wolff in the 1990s. Read more about HACAN’s work here: http://hacan.org.uk/
