The Gilbert Lane Trust                




About Us



The Charity was established in 1997  by Roger and Helen Lane in memory of their parents and members of the Lane family continue to have representation on the board of trustees.  Gil  and Grace were both born in Lincolnshire and retained strong family ties with the county throughout their lives. In recent years  links with the county have been strengthened with the acquisition by G R Lane Health Products of Boston based Jakemans (Confectioners) Ltd.

In 1930 Gil and Grace settled in Gloucestershire and established G R Lane Health Products. As a result the Charity is based in Gloucester  and  makes grants  to other charities particularly those based in Gloucestershire and  Lincolnshire.

Charities receiving grants recently have included:

  • Play Gloucestershire
  • Stroud Court Community Trust
  • Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court
