The Dylan Foundation is the brainchild of Des Smith, Shareholder/Managing Director of Aspall Cyder Limited.

With recent philanthropic experience as the Chairman of Trustees for Bury St Edmunds based charity Focus12, Des has decided the time is right for him to merge business with his desire to give something back to the wider community.

The Dylan Foundation will hold a number of social events during each year with the sole purpose of raising funds for chosen charities.  It will be a non-profit making organisation funded originally by Des Smith.  Des would also like to work with other businesses or contributors who wish to support charities by giving them a platform to do so.

We hope eventually to create a foundation that will be respected in the whole of the UK and will then invite applications from charities which will be considered by the Board.
