A grant of £15,000 over the next three years has been awarded to the Road Victims Trust (RVT) by the Harpur trust.

The RVT charity is based in Kempston, and provides free emotional and practical support to all persons affected by a road death in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. Each year it supports more than 500 people who have been adversely effected by the impact of a road death. This year marks the 21st anniversary of the RVT, during which time they have supported hundreds of local people.

Chief executive of the RVT, Mark Turner, said: “This funding allows the RVT to continue to deliver its unique and tailored service to the people of Bedford at their time of need.”

Deborah Inskip DL, a trustee of the Harpur Trust, said: “We are proud to continue our support of a Bedford based charity who have a strong tradition and pedigree in offering much needed support to people at their lowest possible ebb.”
