The Harry James Riddleston Charity of Leicester

The Harry James Riddleston Charity has been in existence since the early 1970’s and was set up with the money Harry James Riddleston bequeathed to the Trust on his death.  Born in Leicester in the late 1800’s, Harry James Riddleston was a self-made man who founded two successful businesses in Leicester.  Having begun these businesses with very little initial capital, Harry Riddleston chose to assist future entrepreneurs by establishing a charitable trust to help young people start their own businesses.
