Long term commitments


Last year the Alborada Trust distributed c. £7.5m. Primarily this was to continue to support long-term commitments to both human and equine research projects. It continued to support ARUK, Cancer Research UK, Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the University of Suffolk’s Integrated Care Academy.  Equine commitments continued with long-standing arrangements with the RVC, University of Cambridge and The Brooke.

It also saw the Trust commit significant funds to help displaced Ukrainian families in their homeland, Poland and the UK, via a number of global multinational and local national charities.

Alongside this, 2022 saw an increase in the support for humanitarian aid and international development projects in other parts of the world including but not exclusively: The Horn of Africa, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Haiti, Pakistan, Poland, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Ukraine, Yemen, Zambia ….

The Trust again supported its wildlife conservation partner DSWF and supported applications for the first time from a number of smaller charities including Anne Robson Trust, Little Lifts, and the Newmarket Charitable Foundation.

The Alborada Trust has a global reach and has made donations to charities that are providing aid to the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Congo, Ethiopia, Greece, Haiti, Gaza, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Mozambique, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Thailand, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
