Grants in Hackney

Allen & Overy Ben Ogden Memorial Fund

The Ben Ogden Memorial Fund has been established by Allen & Overy in memory of Ben Ogden who was on his way to becoming a very successful solicitor. He passed his Legal Practitioners Course with flying colours and at the end of his two year training contract with Allen & Overy he was taken on in their employment and pensions department. It was during his qualification break that he tragically died in the Nepalese air crash on 28 September 2012.

East End Community Foundation is distributing grants of up to £2,500 on behalf of the Allen & Overy Ben Ogden Memorial Fund to improve access to and opportunities in education, employment and training for residents in the London boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets.
