Charity number


The Monte San Martino Trust was founded in 1989 by J. Keith Killby, a former prisoner of war in Italy, together with other veterans of the Second World War. It awards English language study bursaries in England to Italians, aged 18 to 25, in grateful recognition of the courage and sacrifice of the Italian country people who rescued thousands of escaping Allied PoWs after the Armistice in 1943. The Trust, which is a registered charity, awards bursaries to young Italians to learn English in the UK. It also supports Freedom Walks in Italy, helps members research escapes by prisoners of war, and holds an annual lunch. It is funded entirely by donations and staffed by volunteers. The courage of those Italians who were ready to risk their lives to help British soldiers in danger is a glowing example of the moral strength that allowed Italy to redeem itself from the tragedy of the Second World War Giorgio Napolitano - President of Italy. Charity No. 1113897
