Peter and Dorothy Mead Fund
Another legacy, with a different background has been created by Clare Meade, who with her husband helped establish the Yard Project in Lowestoft, a charity which received one of Suffolk Community Foundation’s first ever grants. The Yard Project has supported many young people with work skills and provided a hub for learning for the local community.
But the legacy Clare has created is in memory of her parents Peter and Dorothy Meade who loved Suffolk.
“They were both passionate about lifelong learning and social equality.
“My mother developed MS in her 70s but led a very active life taking great pleasure in supporting the Yard Project with donations, and always wanting to hear about how the project was developing.
“When she died at the end of 2012, I wanted to leave a legacy in the name of my parents, so I established a fund in their memory to provide ongoing support to individuals and projects working in Suffolk to combat inequality.
