Souter Charitable Trust was set up by Brian Souter and his wife Betty Souter in 1992 and over the last five years has awarded over 3,200 grants worth more than £32 million.

The trust gave donations to charities involved in drug, alcohol and nicotine addiction campaigns and supported HIV and AIDS initiatives in more than 20 countries around the globe.

The trust also gave grants to charities involved in health, education, housing, safety, youth work and the alleviation of hunger and poverty.
