I am the very proud daughter of the late Douglas Le Huquet, a Guernsey man, born and bred, who had lived on the island for three days short of 100 years before his death on 16 December 2021.
Such was his love of Guernsey that he wanted to leave a legacy behind for the good of the Guernsey community and so ‘Dougie’s Grant’ was born.
‘Dougie’s Grant’ is an annual amount of £10,000 to a single charity for a defined project or asset. Applications will be accepted from 1st October each year and the successful charity will be announced on 19th December, Dougie’s birthday.
All Guernsey registered charities are invited to apply for the grant and the successful applicant will be chosen by myself.
I am extremely proud of this legacy in memory of my father, Dougie Le Huquet, and like my father my wish is that the grant will benefit countless Guernsey people for many years to come.
