About the Trust

The Paul Curran Celebration Trust was set up after the death of Paul Curran in 2002. The trust was registered with the Charity Commission in 2017 as a Charitible Incorporated Organisation, CIO.

Paul had Friedreich's Ataxia and particularly in his later years had to have very specialised equipment and support.

The trust can offer grants to children and young people up to the age of 30, who have any form of disability together with dependents or carers. The Trust will give grants for health needs, education and training. It will also provide advocacy/advice and information.

About Paul

When he was at primary school Paul was asked to write an essay about 'If I had a million pounds…'. He thought he would probably save and invest in Stocks and Shares, here is a little of what he wrote…

As my million pounds accumulated I think I would gradually grow more and more generous and hopefully give more and more to charities. I am sure that I wouldn't be at all like *Henry Sugar (in his later life)!

*A tale of greed from Roald Dahl.

When we set up this charity in Paul's name we wanted to be generous and do good things to help children and young people with special or individual needs on behalf of Paul.
