Cosmos have received a sizeable donation from an unlikely source in the shape of the Elizabeth Hardie Ferguson
Charitable Trust Fund, which is a trust fund set up by Sir Alex Ferguson in memory of his late mother.
Thanks to Kieran OLeary and his hard work in securing a donation from the charity Wigan Cosmos Football
Club join a long list of deserving organisations that the trust has funded over the past few years.
The Trust acts as a fund raising body and distributes all proceeds to deserving causes within the United Kingdom.
Many groups have already benefited greatly from the Trust Fund; especially those connected to the welfare and well being of children and young people. The Trust also actively supports charities involved in medical research and in hospitals where medical equipment is needed.
Typical examples of groups who have benefited are:
Harmony Row and Govan Initiative:
A major project bringing community life back to the heart of the Govan district of Glasgow. This project is close to Alex's heart, Govan being his birth place.
A hospice for terminally ill children and based in Manchester.
Action For Kids:
A charity that provides mobility aids to disabled children as well as providing family support and independence training.
The Children's Adventure Farm:
A local charity providing breaks and activities for terminally ill, chronically sick, disabled and disadvantaged children.
