About Fund

The Raj K Soni Legacy Fund aims to raise money through sponsored events and donations in order to support and develop local young people through sport and music.


As one of just a few local charities aimed at inspiring young people through sport and music, we raise money through donations and sponsored events, such as cricket, cycling, swimming, music and running.

Over the last three years the fund has awarded £56,753 to 16 local charitable organisations plus a further £2,400 to the Portishead Pool Community Trust who donate their services and use of the Portishead Open Air Pool for our flagship ‘Longest Swim’ event each June.

When we opened our grants application process towards the end of last year, it was again, massively oversubscribed, which just goes to show there are a lot of young people who need our help.

Charity Information

The Raj K Soni Legacy Fund is ringfenced within Quartet Community Foundation. This link will open a new window in Quartet where you can donate online. (

Quartet is a registered charity (Registration number 1080418), so we can collect Gift Aid for all sponsors who pay income or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount the charity will claim in the tax year.  The impact of this is to turn every £10 you donate into £12.50, provided you confirm you want the Charity to obtain Gift Aid.

All donations will be be applied in accordance with the following Raj K Soni Legacy Fund criteria, namely:

1) For the benefit of the community in the West of England (covering the four unitary authorities of Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire)

2) Within that, to support local charities, voluntary and community groups and organisations working with young people up to the age of 21 to provide them with sporting or musical opportunities they would not otherwise have.

Quartet helps us to identify suitable projects for support from the Legacy Fund and we will report back via this website on how the money has been spent.
