The Deakin and Combe Memorial Trust

These grants are made possible by the continuing support of the Deakin family and the trust of the late Nora Combe.

The Deakin and Combe Memorial Trust was first formed in 1944 in memory of George Deakin, Vice President of the NFU and chair of the Pigs Marketing Board, who was tragically killed in 1943.
