The Tramlines Trust

The Tramlines Trust was born out of the desire to uplift and give back to the surrounding communities and culture at the very heart of Tramlines Festival.

The Trust increases annual fundraising and charitable donations that the festival makes, whilst making it easier for MORE grassroots organisations to apply for funding and receive support from Tramlines Festival.

Since 2022, The Tramlines Trust has awarded £58,000 worth of funding grants to local organisations. 37% of all funding grants have gone directly to Hillsborough-based initiatives, including £5000 donated to the Hillsborough Christmas Lights.

 The Tramlines Trust is a micro trust of GivingWorks a UK registered charity (charity no:1078870).
