SPRET Educational Trust

The Sir Philip Reckitt Educational Trust

The Sir Philip Reckitt Educational Trust (SPRET), a registered charity, was established in 1944 by the late Sir Philip Reckitt.

Sir Philip was a former Chairman of Reckitt and Sons Ltd who had a keen interest in educational development particularly for the benefit of his employees. The Trust is now administered by Trustees who have total discretion to allocate grants in accordance with the conditions set out in the Trust Deed.

The objective of the Trust is to assist with education in languages, business methods, social services and the customs of any other country or in any other educational matter, by any person for the time being resident in Norfolk, Hull or the former East Riding of Yorkshire. The Trust's assistance comes in the form of contributions towards the cost of travel, residence and attendance at conferences, lectures and educational courses.
