Welcome to the Axentis Michael Charitable Trust

LOCAL PEOPLE, LOCAL CAUSES, LOCAL GIVING

Providing financial support to those who need it the most, in and around Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset.

The Axentis Michael Charitable Trust is a local charity, for the local community created in loving memory of Weston-super-Mare hotelier and businessman, Axentis Michael, who passed away in 2003.

The Trust has raised and donated in excess of £2M since its formation, with major beneficiaries including Weston Hospicecare, Weston Hospital Children’s Ward and multiple local families and children with life-restricting conditions who have needed treatment not covered by the NHS.

The Axentis Michael Charitable Trust also supports and donates funds to local groups, charities and organisations who work to support the local community.
