About the Trust

A trust which benefits communities within North Yorkshire, Teesside and Cumbria.

Since the mid 1960’s Derek and Jean Noble have enjoyed successful careers in North Yorkshire: experiencing both friendship and kindness. In 1981, they co-founded Noble Fuels and continued to receive huge co-operation and business support from the people of North Yorkshire and Teesside. This motivated the family’s strong desire to give back to the area by supporting local communities and charities in an attempt to make a difference.

In addition to their business lives the Noble family members are committed to, and are actively involved in, fundraising for a variety of charities.

It is, therefore, very appropriate that the Noble Charitable Trust was formed in order to provide a formal structure for donating to worthy causes in the designated areas of North Yorkshire, Teesside and Cumbria.
