The Melton Building Society Charitable Foundation has set up a special trust – the June Roper Sporting Trust – to administer a donation to the Foundation made by local sportswoman June Roper in her Will.
June Roper was born in Melton in 1924 and played and coached tennis and badminton in the local area for more than 68 years. June became Hamilton Tennis Club’s first female club captain and represented the Club at numerous tournaments. June combined her sporting pursuits with an enormous amount of charity work. In 2005 her hard work for Macmillan Cancer Support and other causes earned her an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list.
In her Will, June kindly made a donation to her local Building Society’s Charitable Foundation. June had a long standing relationship with the Melton Building Society and trusted the Society’s Charitable Foundation to administer her legacy wisely. In line with her wishes, the Charitable Foundation has set up a special trust – the June Roper Sporting Trust – to ensure June’s legacy supports charities or non-profit making organisations or individuals from underprivileged backgrounds seeking grant aid for projects with a focus on sport.
