The Johnners Trust was founded as the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust in 1995 by Brian’s widow, Pauline Johnston, and it has been administered since 1999 by the Lord’s Taverners. Brian’s eldest son Barry Johnston is now the family trustee. 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.
These awards [see Awards] are funded through membership of the Johnners Club and the annual Johnners Dinner held in the Long Room at Lord’s each autumn, and an annual grant from the Lord’s Taverners Foundation.
