The Fabric of Bedford

Click here to watch the Live Stream at 7pm

Virtually everyone in Bedford Borough will have been touched by our work in some way, but the chances are, they won't realise it.

The 'Fabric of Bedford' tells the story of how The Harpur Trust has been intrinsically woven into all strands of Bedford life for over 450 years. The central character in the film provides a nod to our founder, a tailor who went off to London to make his fortune, leaving a lasting legacy for the town of his birth.

We are well known for running 4 schools and for sponsoring a multi academy trust. We are less known for the work we do in supporting the people of Bedford throughout their life stages. We use our endowment to support a huge number of local projects, charities and voluntary groups, as well as providing a home to the town's older people and providing bursaries to enable disadvantaged pupils to access university. The film aims to reach out to our community to tell them how we are here for Bedford and how we are here to help.

We are not a fundraising charity so we are not seeking donations.
