Weston Spirit ceases trading after 20 years

The Weston Spirit charity has ceased trading after 20 years of helping underprivileged youngsters

Weston Spirit, the charity which helped underprivileged youngsters for 20
years, has ceased trading after recording losses of £640,000.

The charity which received millions in donations, including £2m from the
Lottery, was founded by Falklands veteran Welsh Guard Simon Weston.

The charity reportedly has been in financial difficulties since December, and
a rescue plan to save the charity failed, forcing the charity to cease trading,
according to the South Wales Echo.

‘A combination of factors have made fundraising very difficult in recent
years and mounting debt sadly forced what was a very, very difficult decision
for the trustees and the executive,’ Weston said in a website statement.
