Brian Johnston Memorial Trust

The Brian Johnston Memorial Trust was founded in 1995 by Brian’s widow, Pauline Johnston, and it has been administered since 1999 by the Lord’s Taverners. The aims of the charity are:

  • The annual award of Brian Johnston Scholarships to promising young cricketers in need of financial assistance to fulfil their potential at county and national level.
  • The support of cricket for the Blind and the Visually Impaired.
  • Sponsorship of the BJMT/ECB Elite Spin Bowling Programme.

These awards [see Awards] are funded through membership of the Johnners Club, the Johnners Club Dinner held in the Long Room at Lord’s each autumn, and an annual grant from the Lord’s Taverners Foundation.

If you would like more information on how to become a member of the Johnners Club and support the charity, or would like to apply for a Brian Johnston cricket scholarship, please contact Richard Anstey, the trust administrator, at the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust, c/o Lord’s Taverners, 90 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1EU, or email: bjmt@lordstaverners.org.
