Gareth Butler, history and shaping the future

Gareth Butler, who died in late February of this year, was, according to his BBC colleague Jon Sopel 'one of the cleverest, most knowledgeable and likeable people in broadcasting.' His wife, Jessica, has established a charitable trust in his memory - the Gareth Butler History Trust - with the simple aim helping to fund school history trips for lower income students in state schools.

Jess has set up a blog to track the progress of the trust and is keen to hear from potential endorsers and donors. Please think about linking to Jess's blog or better still putting her in touch with some high profile endorsers or donors.
